Japanese Calligraphy is the "Art of Black and White," where the brush is the medium. The mystery of this art style is how many different styles of writing and how much feeling can be expressed via a single brush. In this Zoom Class, you will learn the basics of Japanese Calligraphy and the eight basic strokes using the brush and the Character "永." Each brush stroke makes a unique shape, changing thickness as it is written. Instructor Emiko Kuisel, a native of Japan, is excited to introduce you to the world of Japanese Calligraphy with a brush, ink and paper. You are welcome to simply observe, but the class will be much more fun and rewarding if you are able to participate using authentic materials which are easy to purchase. --About the Presenter-- Emiko Kuisel was born in Kyoto, Japan. She began her Japanese calligraphy (Shodo) training when she was 10 years old and has earned the highest rank of Master's degree from the Japanese Calligraphy Association, the largest calligraphy school in Japan. She has been trained and immersed in the many styles & techniques of traditional Japanese calligraphy. She has taught at the University of Cincinnati and has presented numerous workshops for adults as well as children. Please note that this class is limited to 15 participants and tickets are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend, kindly let us know so that we may free up the space for someone else. We are happy to issue a credit toward another workshop. We are planning a total of 3 (adult) Calligraphy workshops this year, and your credit would apply to any workshop (including other topics) offered through March, 2022.
