EXPLORE RUMI WITH THE ASIAN BRUSH

Join us for a one-day workshop exploring the unique qualities of the Asian brush. We will learn some basics about Asian brushes and the context in which they have traditionally been used: oriental painting, zen and calligraphy. The Asian brush gives us a felt experience of the life force flowing in us.

We will paint spontaneously using themes and words by the great Sufi mystic Rumi.  No experience or special skills required just a willingness to be curious, present and play with the brush. Everyone can do this.

Facilitated by Rubina Rajan, a visual artist who has studied Zen calligraphy under various brush masters for more than 10 years. She is passionate about the Asian brush and its ability to take us deep within.

Date: Sunday, October 19, 2014 – 10 am to 4pm

Location: will be sent to participants

Cost: $77 per person – plus $20 for supplies. No gst

Max: 15 Asian brush enthusiasts
