Sumie 103

Noboru Uezumi How about having your first Sumei lesson at aged 103? The Japan Society of Fairfield County held a Sumei class at the Nathaniel Witherell Nursing Home in Greenwich on Jauary 31, 2008. Among the participants was a 103 year old resident. Even though this was the first time at Sumei painting for the residents, they achieved excellent renderings of a bamboo and leaves. The instructors for the class were Mr. Noboru Uezumi and Ms. Naomi Shima.  They were introduced by Mr. Harry Sakamaki, president of the society. Ms. Junko Uezumi and spouses of the teachers from the Japanese School were also present to help at this event. We are very thankful to board member Vicky Hackman who organized this program with Witherel and their generous donation to JSFC. Everyone had a very enjoyable time and we are all looking forward to returning to Witherell for another artistic event.
