Pine, bamboo and plum blossom share the ability to thrive in the harshness of winter. Together they embody perseverance, steadfastness and resilience. Throughout the ages, these symbols of virtue came to be known as the “Three Friends of Winter” and an important theme in Chinese painting, poetry and calligraphy. This three-session class will offer traditional ink brushwork techniques for painting pine, bamboo and plum – focusing on one “friend” each week. Calligraphy will be included as well.
