Calligraphic Abstractions
calligraphic abstractions

Alternative Views:

The calligraphic line, with its fluidity and beauty, is not just for calligraphers to use. In this weekend workshop, where no calligraphy experience is required, we will look at three different lettering styles that have distinct personalities and create unique moods. We will then gather the essence of each style to develop abstract paintings based on calligraphic form. Working with ink, watercolors, various tools, gestures, our senses and intuition, we will discover the images, thoughts and feelings that spontaneously arise within us in relation to each lettering style. We will follow the expression of these marks to complete works of art and a book that each participant will make.
