with Linda Schultz
Nature is the heart of Chinese Brush painting. It is intended to be a meditative and spontaneous art form, capturing the essence of an image or idea with very little attention to precise details. Come and learn the basics for this meditative art form. Using the “Four Treasures”, the brush, ink stick, ink stone and the paper, you will learn the techniques to create the “Four Gentleman”, the bamboo, orchid, plum and chrysanthemum. Each “Gentleman” introduces a new stroke or idea and reinforces techniques already learned. Continual demonstrations will be provided through out the classes, along with individual attention and feedback. A supply fee of $38 will be due at the beginning of class to the teacher and will include paper, ink, a brush, a palette, felt, copies and a newsprint pad.
Saturday and Sunday, October 27 and 28: 10am - 5pm
$120 for members / $130 for non-members
