    311907 - Asian Ink Brush Painting

    Experience for yourself the art of ink-and-brush painting. Ink and brush painting is the calligraphic line (dancing,

    strokes to interpret images with an emphasis placed on the beauty of each individual stroke of the brush. Learn how the brush techniques include not only line drawing but also the stylized expressions of shade and texture (cunfa) and the dotting methods (dianfa) used mainly to differentiate trees and plants and also for simple embellishment. Program fee includes the pen used to teach this technique. If you enjoy this program, consider the Park and Recreation Calligraphy class to be held on April 9 and 16 as outlined elsewhere in this brochure-just make sure to pre-register!

    311920 - Block Printing

    Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking, and has been around for thousands of years. It is essentially using a carved material covered in ink to transfer an image on to paper, fabric, wood, canvas or any other materials you might want to experiment with at home. Block Printing can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber, or any other materials. We will be working with linoleum. You will find that images that are printed with this technique are typically much bolder than other types of printmaking. As this is done by hand, the ink sits on the surface which adds a raised texture to the paper. In this two-night class, you will draw, design, and carve your designs on to a block. On the second night, you will use your design block to print utilizing different paper options such as rice paper, card stock, and different color drawing paper to see how each provides a unique look for your designs. Sharp carving tools will be used to carve into the block.
