MK-12-19 Prickly Pear Cacti - Asian Brush Painting with Martha Klare



 The Prickly Pear cactus is one of the most iconic plants of the American deserts. It’s unique growth habit and contrast of delicate blooms and prickly pads gives it an abundance of character, making it an excellent Asian Brush Painting subject. This workshop will focus on the Prickly Pear (in bloom). Using traditional Asian Brush Painting materials you will be introduced to the fundamentals and principles of the art form. With your new knowledge you will have the opportunity to experiment and create your personal images of the Prickly Pear. You will also experience the power of being “mindful” as your work becomes a visual reflection of your unique ch’i (energy, spirit) in a moment of time, which cannot be repeated. Asian Brush Painting is a great way to practice some of the basics of mind, art and meditation in a visual form.

Experience this unique art form for the first time or hone your skills from our previous brush painting workshops.


Note: You will be working with black ink and colors that do not wash out. Please dress accordingly.
