All day

This is an introductory course which will cover the dynamics of traditional off-hand flourishing.  In this class we will discuss such fundamental elements as layout, strokes, line relationships, sequence, variety and details which make a strong breath-taking piece.  This is an excellent course for those who are new to flourishing or to anyone who wishes to have a deeper understanding of the underlying principles of flourishing.  We will be composing these individual elements into such traditional patterns as abstract line flourishes, quills, birds, and swans.  We will also discuss (with this foundation) how to apply these practices in your own way to make your work flourish!
