Chinese calligraphy is one of the highest forms of visual arts. The contrast of black on white, the expressive quality of movement through line, and the meaning of behind the characters all communicate the beauty of thought through a unique visual language. The meaning of each word is poetically balanced with the visual in the art of calligraphy.

The process of learning ink and Chinese calligraphy contains elements of eastern philosophy and aesthetics. This class touches on basic principles and techniques of brush work with different lines and strokes. Explore inking as a medium, expanding knowledge of brushes, ink-stone, rice paper and seals, while learning how to personalize work. Focus on skills of balance and composition while enjoying the pleasure of the ink brush work. This class is an exercise in spiritual and aesthetic refinement.
