Shodo, or Japanese Calligraphy, has been practiced for hundreds of years as an art, a meditation tool, and, of course, a method of communication. Learn how to mix your own ink, basic brush technique and forms, and the method to practice at home after the class is over. No prior knowledge of Japanese or calligraphy is needed; all class supplies provided. Walk home with a beautiful piece of hand painted art!
MEET THE INSTRUCTOR
Sara Beth Winters got bitten with the Japanese language bug after her parents told her studying Spanish would be more useful. A full ride to Soka University in Tokyo later, Sara’s worked diligently at her Japanese and calligraphy ever since, teaching calligraphy and ukio-e painting across the USA at anime conventions like Otakon since 2010 with a Masters in East Asian Studies and Japanese Economics from the University of California, San Diego.
