The Jasmine Pearl 724 N.E. 22nd Ave., Portland, OR 97232
Sho Do is an ancient form of Japanese calligraphy. This style of artistic writing has its roots in the Nara and Heian periods of Japan and over the centuries gained a strong connection to Zen Buddhism. Join Eri Luman in this meditative practice as you learn to find the meditative mind in the movement and process of calligraphy paintings as you express yourself with brush and ink. In this class you will use Japanese calligraphy tools to create with your mind and body together.
Ink, tools and paper will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring their own tools and extra paper of their own to paint on. Experimentation and exploration are encouraged. Knowledge of the Japanese language is not necessary.
Please wear appropriate clothing. Ink may get onto clothing and stain it. Avoid flowing materials.
