Intermediate Western Calligraphy Tips : Calligraphy Triad Tips

Let’s talk about triads. Triads are things
that come in threes and as you know because I’ve been emphasizing this all along, we’ve
got a triad. Our most basic triad is our circle and our triangle and our square. But there
are all kinds of other triads that I love and I want to share with you. First of all
there’s the idea of the three points for the eye in art. You know how this plays out, this
three points for the eye is a way of directing the eye, ok . What you see, what you see first,
what you see second, what you see third. And a typical example of that would be the Madonna
and child, can you see the triangle here. The three points for the eye. Then we have
the idea, the triad idea of the beginning, the middle, and the end. And this may sound
silly and obvious to you but you know what, even in making a single stroke, you want to
be conscious, and awake to the beginning, you want to be conscious and awake to the
middle, and conscious and awake to the end. So all the way, all the way through the stroke
you’re conscious and deliberate about what you do. You begin with consciousness and deliberation
and you end in the same manner. This is something that you need to be reminded of because sometimes
with your own handwriting you tend to forget to do that. You are so used to being rote
with your own handwriting. Stimulation, challenge, and order is the basic idea for teachers in
the classroom. Black, white and grey, basic idea. And in art sometimes when you are searching
for what to do next or what to think, you can remind yourself that there is three things,
repetition, variation and change.
