"Garden Banners"
June 22, 2019
 

”When the breeze blows prayer flags, harmony, happiness, and good fortune are spread among all living beings.” With Jane Everhart’s guidance, we’ll practice traditional Chinese characters, such as moon, tree, land, sky, flower, and wind using traditional Sumi materials. This introduction will prompt our thinking about abbreviated ideas and images for garden banners. We’ll take a Nature walk around MoonTree to look for color and gather natural materials. Then we’ll translate our impressions into images on muslin. The banners you create will dance and interact with the breezes, the wind, or the stillness near your garden or patio. Wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes. All participants under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult. Please bring a lunch.
