Color for Calligraphers
With Eleanor Winters & Leendert van der Pool
Through The Gentle Penman

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.

HKD 1,170.00 or USD 150.00

Live presentation and will be recorded and available for 60 days following the final class. 

Date: 13, 20 Mar; 03, 10, 17 & 24 Apr, 2022 
Time: 09:00 AM – 11:00 AM (Hong Kong Time)
