Sumi-e Painting of a Rooster Using Its Calligraphy

A crash course on learning the Chinese calligraphy of the Rooster and using it to make a Sumi-e painting.

As it is the Chinese New Year of the Rooster as of January 28th, I have created this crash course to give an overview of the method that I teach and I use in my own paintings.

In this course, I will be showing you how to paint/write the Chinese calligraphy of the Rooster and how to apply it in making your own Rooster Sumi-e painting.

It is a meditative method which facilitates for Westerners, as well as people with Eastern backgrounds, the ability to find their own voice and language of expression, rather than copying patterns and shapes.

In my upcoming Sumi-e classes, I will be teaching in depth, the technical, meditative and historic aspects involved in Sumi-e painting/calligraphy.

I am a contemporary Canadian artist. I have a degree in Fine arts (BFA) as well as Bachelor of Science (BSc) from Concordia University, Montreal. My life is inspired by oriental philosophies such as Taoism and Zen Buddhism, and my art is influenced by their teachings.

My paintings are in Sumi-e style, based on calligraphic strokes, where the emphasis is on capturing the mood, energy or spirit, rather than giving detailed description.

I have been teaching Sumi-e since 2007. I use a unique approach to facilitate people with Western or Eastern with modern background for easier learning of this profound form of creating.

I guide my students to truly see the subject matter as if seen for first time and convey that in their artwork. In my classes I help the students to connect to their body and with mindful presence, breath and Oriental brush to create dynamic and poetic image.
