OFFS:CHINART The Chinese Scholar-Artist.
Records dating back to 17th-century China define "scholar" as a student and practitioner of Siyi, the four arts of painting, calligraphy, music and go. Inspired by the Siyi practice, this seminar presents China as an inspirational and informational resource for the creative artist, as well as other non-fine arts majors with strong interest in the creative arts. A multi-disciplinary approach combining calligraphy, photography, music and tai chi frames a cultural exploration of contemporary Chinese arts (Beijing and Shanghai) and tribal culture (Hunan), revealing the Chinese commitment to cultural connection spanning over 4,000 years. 2 SH.
