Empty Hand, Empty Brush: A Calligraphy Workshop

March 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free - $100.00

Join artist Kichung Lizee for a workshop demonstrating how East-West calligraphy is a type of meditation and also a discipline in centering–starting from the correct postural alignment of the spine, to preparing calligraphic ink, holding the brush correctly as an extension of the arm, and executing brush strokes in oneness. Learn how to sense your internal energy through Qi-Gong and Tai Chi exercises and apply this awareness to free-flowing calligraphic art, in addition to demonstrating traditional Eastern calligraphic paintings. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to integrate mindfulness and creative expression. Experienced artists and beginners welcome!

This workshop will be hosted online via Zoom.

For those who wish to do brush work during the workshop, rice paper, brushes, ink stone and sticks are available for an additional modest fee. For materials, please contact the artist at
