The Art of Brush Stroke and Chinese Ink Painting
A guided journey from basic calligraphy brush stroke to complete ink painting.
This 6-week course is based on traditional Chinese ink painting techniques and Zen philosophy, inspired by the work by Zen brush master Kazuaki Tanahashi. This class will start with the basic brush strokes and focus on finding inner peace through connecting with your brush.
You will be introduced to painting tools and materials, basic brush strokes and painting methods. From there we will build skills for painting plants and animals of increasing complexity. Try your hand at these historically and culturally important methods, and create some beautiful paintings of your own.
Time: 11.00-12.30pm (Weekly on Sanday mornings)
Dates: Inclusive of June 21 - July 26 (Six Classes)
Cost: €120/ €80 (Concessions available/Members at reduced rate)
Ink Painting Teacher: Angelia Yingge Xu
Meditation Instructor & Co-ordinator: Mark Duggan
Materials: For the 6-week course you will require basic ink painting tools such as Chinese/Japanese ink painting brush, ink and xuan paper or normal A4 paper. If you don't have these materials or would like to get a set, we will send you more details upon registration.
Each class will begin with a short sitting meditation. We would recommend that you settle yourself in a quiet and ordered place and to wear comfortable clothes.
