Zen of Drawing
at UWA Extension Perth, W.A.
Zen….. ‘drawing with a chinese brush’
A relaxing, “Zen” approach to drawing.
Key focus is on the methods of Relaxing through the media of drawing.
All the art supplies for the workshop course are being provided.
Professional artist quality materials are chosen rather than student grade.
Soft pastels, pen and ink, different pencils, inktense media and others will be available to work with.
The papers also will include Arches 100% cotton as well as some unique Japanese papers and specialty papers.
These photo images are just Samples, of the types and the styles of approaches we will be considering and exploring in the course.
These approaches are geared for simplicity. Ease.
Geared for …. the art of allusion, to evoke and to suggest.
This is the principle of wabi sabi called YUGEN.
The art of ‘suggesting’ a deeper beauty rather than stating it directly, underlies much of the course approach and techniques.
