CG380 - Zen Brush Art & Japanese Calligraphy
Member Tuition: $145.00  
Non-Member: $175.00  

Skill Levels: All Levels

This 2000-year-old art form is practiced by Zen Masters who adhere to the practice of meditation in preparation for painting. Noriko will start the class with a Zen meditation and serve tea in preparation for Zen Brush techniques. Zen calligraphy differs from other calligraphic disciplines as it is focused on the realization of "no-mind." Furthermore, it is the expression of Zen through a brush, whether the result is a single stroke, a Zen circle, or an ink painting. Enso is a Japanese word meaning “circle” and a concept strongly associated with Zen. Enso is one of the most common subjects of Japanese calligraphy even though it is a symbol and not a character. In Zen Buddhist painting, enso symbolizes a moment when the mind is free to simply let the body and spirit create.
There is a $15 materials fee paid directly to the instructor.
