New Class in Calligraphy/Brush Painting

Sunday 15h00-17h30 (Except Geneva school holidays)

Place: Crayons de Soleil (7 Rue Ernest-Hentsch, Geneve 1207)


Korean/Chinese Calligraphy and brush painting could come off at first as rigid and strict in comparison to other methods of drawing and painting. Not only that, each area among the three requires hours and years of practice to “master” it. The history this ancient art form is vast and there had been numerous masters in the past who put unreachable standards for the posterity.

However, it is good to remember it is not about impressing other people or pleasing a critical self. It is rather for the enjoyment of the moment of practicing, losing oneself in the act of writing or painting, and coming back to life energised and enlightened.

The workshops are meant to be taken individually or in multiples consecutively or not. It is recommended to follow 5 Classes of Initiation to Calligraphy/Brush Painting.
