Tuesday, May 4, 2021, 7pm

Virtually join the DSA for an iroshizuku ink workshop over Zoom! Meet instructor, Teresa Olavarria, and learn about her artistic practice.

Teresa Olavarria
Teresa Olavarria has taught art at Rosewood Art Centre, the Dayton Art Institute and the Carpenter Art Enamel Foundation. She has a BFA from The University of Dayton and attended University of Louisville for Art Therapy. Her non traditional approach to sumi style ink painting embraces the fluidity and meditative qualities of the medium with playful control.

The purpose of the workshop series, Introducing..., is to acquaint DSA members and the community to different mediums and methods in the visual arts. In conjunction, the attendees will get to know the instructing artist, their background, and tips and tricks of their trade.
