Ink brush painting was born during the Tang Dynasty in China and developed rapidly in the Son Dynasty. It arrived in Japan during the Kamakura period. Artists express their concepts of nature and emotion through brush painting. The artists express their joy, rhythm, and vitality on rice paper.

Jean's work will also be accompanied with her students' own original work that share the sense of joyfulness Jean teaches.

Prince Ivan wanders into the garden and discovers the Firebird, a mystical creature that appears to be a beautiful woman with a bird-like appearance. Prince Ivan is searching for a beloved princess who has been captured by the evil magician, Kaschei.
