Mark Making for the Imagination, Art of writing in the West
The course will be mainly practical. We will start with the writing of a word, then move on to the single mark, the gesture, the pressure, the space/form balance and finally the art of freely tracing marks on paper. For some the text will remain the fulcrum of the experience, for others it will only be a starting point towards abstraction, for still others the only apparently casual mark will be fully satisfactory. Participants will discover the expressive potential of handwriting and its value as a practice of concentration and well-being. In this journey we will draw inspiration from the words of the poet Tsering Wangmo Dhompa “Emptiness is not deprivation of …, or a lack of meaning, rather emptiness indicates a potential. Emptiness is like zero where zero is an indicator of nothing but the beginning, it is the possibility of what may come after that makes zero so crucial”.
The course is open to all lovers of hand writing, calligraphists, artists and designers. Beginners may also take part.
