This brush work seminar is designed for both novice beginners and experienced ongoing students. One of the essential 'gentleman's' arts, Chinese calligraphy or brushwork is for both visual artists and martial artists alike. This discipline allows the student too focus on brush, ink, paper and composition proving a unique approach to sensitivity with both the visual and the physical art. Visual artists will learn a traditional approach to applying ink to paper through pressure alone.
Martial artists will develop an eye for detail, intense focus, and a high sensitivity for pressure and transmitting energy to external presence. Learning brushwork is often used as a compliment to weapons work.
Interested students should contact LaoMa for more information.
