November Art Demo: Eri Kanda
11-7-2017, 7 p.m.
Join the Glenview Art League on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, for a chance to try your hand at Japanese brush painting! Eri Kanda is a visiting artist from Japan, teaching at GBS High School, and will demonstrate the uses of the brush for painting monochromatic bamboo, irises, and plum blossom branches, the foundation of character writing brushwork. She will also show her calligraphy work. Black ink, rice paper, and sumi-e brushes will be provided. Participants are invited to try these techniques to learn the foundation of Asian calligraphy art. Ms. Kanda will give participants their names in Japanese hiragana if they wish. Yvonne Wolf will explain the mindful exercise and the meditative art of sumi-e calligraphy while Ms. Kanda demonstrates.
