Korean Painting: 'Drawing Various Chrysanthemums & Bamboo’

Thursday from 15:30-18:00 h

Kelly Jang

For whom
Alle levels welcome

Traditional Korean painting is a treasure of symbolism and profound meaning,
particularly in its ability to encapsulate the essence of various seasons and spiritual
concepts through art. Our journey into this rich tradition begins with Sagunja, or the
Four Scholars-Four Plants Painting, as our foundation for understanding Korean art.

Originating from the writings of scholars, Sagunja transformed their calligraphic
prowess into visual representations symbolizing both the season and spirit. In our
class, we embark on this practice by drawing Chrysanthemum, Flowers that bloom to
overcome the first cold. We will use two techniques to draw various chrysanthemums
and landscapes that evoke the mood of fall. After that, we will learn about the
Bamboo the symbol of vitality in wintertime.
Engaging in Sagunja practice offers a harmonious fusion of poetry, calligraphy, and
visual artistry. Join us in this captivating journey as we unlock the beauty and depth
of traditional Korean painting, one stroke at a time.
