"Mind, Hear and your Hand will come to the connection through your Brush".
Hi, I'm Angelia Yingge Xu, an ink brush artist. I believe ink painting/ calligraphy is not only an art format, but also a way to get connected with yourself, to be present and to know yourself...

Joy on the Tip of the Brush - Orchid
An East Asian ink painting course of Orchid (“兰”).
Thousands of years ago, the Chinese ink painting artists always followed a golden rule - paint only when they are in the mood. Our master’s epigram is something of a signpost which gives warning that painting and mood must be in accord:
“When there is joy, paint the orchid.”
This course is based on a step-by-step approach so that we will deepen our understanding and strengthen our brush skills with joy and grace. We will learn how to paint orchid through various brush techniques and exercises supported with individual guidance, and each session ends with suggestions for home practice designed to help you cultivate your own brush practice.
