Intermediate/Advanced Shodo For Sumi-è Painters (Online)

Instructor: Mark Malecki

[Intermediate/Advanced] This class is open to students who have taken the introductory course in Shodo or who have a prior background in East Asian calligraphy. The students will study Chinese characters, starting with copying masterworks and students who become proficient will be encouraged to find their own preferred style. We will also be using Japanese vertical writing called Renmentai to copy poems and haiku and may combine them with visual images, In every class the instructor will demonstrate Chinese characters, Japanese hiragana and Korean hangul. Knowledge of Chinese, Japanese or Korean is not necessary, but students will be instructed in how to learn to translate characters and symbols when they wish to learn meanings.

Students need to purchase a limited number of supplies for this class. A kit of supplies is available for purchase online through The Art League’s website, and can be shipped for a fee. The supply list and kit available for purchase are below.
