Open to beginners and experienced painters alike, we will make Chinese and Japanese calligraphy as well as Chinese and Sumi-e paintings using authentic materials: bamboo brushes, Chinese ink, Chinese colors, and rice paper. Winter subjects will include Chinese painting of a pine tree and sparrows; Chinese calligraphy for “winter” and “sparrow;” Sumi-e sparrow with plum blossoms; sumi-e dove with bamboo; and Japanese calligraphy for “winter” and “spring.” All are welcome. Handouts will be provided. You will be able to get lesson plans containing links to demos and more by email. Students must get their materials.
