Workshop: An Introduction to Calligraphic Mark Making with Gina Jonas

Saturday & Sunday, September 28 & 29, 2019 | 10am-5pm

Explore the abstract art of mark making through the calligraphic qualities of energy, movement, gesture, and touch. Master Calligrapher Gina Jonas will guide you on a meditative journey into calligraphic mark making, helping you to relax and fuse your emotions with the marks you create on the page. Students will learn to use the tools as expressions of the self through a holistic investigation of stroke, line, and space. This workshop is for all types of artists at all levels–anyone interested in expanding their visual vocabularies and tapping into their creative senses.
