Japanese Ink Art Workshop for Kids (8-12 Years)

Learn traditional Japanese ink painting techniques in Melbourne!



2 hours Class size 1 to 12     label $43

Looking for unique Melbourne kids activities that will tap into their creative side? Learn traditional Japanese ink painting techniques at Gloworm Studios in Fairfield.

Traditional Japanese calligraphy and Sumi-e painting artists are able to paint expressive poetry and vivid scenes of nature using only the various tones of black Sumi ink and brush techniques.

In this Melbourne workshop for kids, they will learn to make and use different Sumi ink tones and brush techniques to create traditional Japanese ink paintings on rice paper.

During the workshop, kids will:

  • Learn how to make ink and use materials
  • Understand ink tone, basic brush strokes and rhythm
  • Understand composition techniques used in traditional Japanese painting
  • Learn how to be creative in the moment
  • Experience a meditative process in the art

Kids will leave this unique workshop with a range of new Japanese ink painting skills and their own creations from the day.

Please note: Junko will also be running a Japanese ink art workshop for adults in July!

Junko Azukawa grew up in Toyama, Japan at the base of the central Japanese Alps, a region famous for the natural beauty of its landscape.

She started learning traditional Japanese calligraphy (Shodo) at the age of five and has experienced the vast possibilities that calligraphy and Japanese ink painting (Sumie) can express with just simple monotone brush strokes.

Since becoming a resident of Melbourne, Australia in 2005, Junko has brought her unique artistic talents and outlook to the Australian art scene. She started teaching Japanese calligraphy and painting with children and adults at numerous schools and organisations and also exhibited at a number of galleries in Australia and Japan.

One of her artwork is now in the National Gallery of Victoria’s collection. She is also sought after in commercial design work for her skilful brushwork from bottle label and package design to restaurant mural.

We both enjoyed the class and found the Cherry Blossoms were easy to do once you got the hang of it.

This was a really fun class - we learnt how to draw an anime portrait and watched a movie. Recommended! (Abbie age 10)

This class was such an inspiration for my 10 year old daughter. Not only are the teachers delightful and highly competent, but the chance to experience different art techniques was such a wonderful opportunity. Thank you, Gloworm!

Glenda Thomas Jun 2021


Great class that my 11 year old really enjoyed. She spoke very highly of her teacher, Ms Azukawa, and the Japanese ink techniques she learnt. As a parent, I appreciated that proper safety protocols were followed and the friendly, welcoming manner of everyone we dealt with. I felt my child was well cared for and engaged. Highly recommended.
