In this contemplative workshop we will engage with pen,pencil and brush to connect with ourselves and the page.
This practice helps us understand how to make a vivid connection with ourselves in daily life.
Beginning with slow handwriting we will explore the honesty and immediacy of the visual voice.
Using blind contour drawing, the sensing feeling line opens further, fully attending to what we see close at hand.
Then working with big brushes and ink the intimacy of our experience expands boldly out into the world engaging the whole body.
Throughout the process the ancient principles of heaven, earth and human guide and stabilize our expression giving our marks strength and power.
No previous art experience is needed. Bring a favorite writing pen and pencil and wear black pants just in case.
