By Eleanor Winters & Leendert van der Pool

Starts 13 Mar 2022

HK$1,170

US$150

Workshop Description

For calligraphers and students who have never experienced the joys of writing in color, this class will be an exciting opportunity!  Taught by two instructors -- fine-artist Leendert van der Pool and calligrapher Eleanor Winters -- we will approach color from both an artist's and a calligrapher's point of view.

 

We will explore both the theoretical / traditional approach to color (color theory, the color wheel, mixing and blending colors, creating tints and shades) and will learn to apply this knowledge through practical and artistic projects.  The class will work primarily with gouache, but will also experiment with watercolor and acrylic to create backgrounds for our calligraphy.

 

Some experience with calligraphy pens is necessary, although the focus of the class will be on using color to add to and enhance your existing skills.
