Go With the Flow: Shades of Black (With a Dash of Red)

The third and final session of the Go With the Flow class was held at Alley Art Studio on Sunday. The class, A Mindful Meditation Experience through Chinese Brush Painting, was led by Elizabeth Hartshorn and Cindy Lommasson. I wrote in detail about the class earlier in the month, so click here if you want to read more. During the course of our three sessions, we learned some of the basic techniques of Chinese brush painting, including how to draw Zen circles, fish, flowers, dragonflies, and bamboo.

My favorite? The Zen Circles. Are you surprised?

If you're interested in registering for future sessions of this class, call Elizabeth at 503-588-2113.
