Originating in 8th century, Chinese Brush Painting is one of the most
renowned approaches to painting. It unifies what were considered the
highest forms of creativity in China: painting, poetry, and calligraphy.
Known as the “Three Perfections,” the painting style combines these
disciplines to depict nature as a stylized extension of the emotional world
of the artist.
For the beginner, you will learn the “Four Gentlemen,” each a
representative of the four seasons: wild orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum, and
plum blossom. We will focus on the quality of strokes, color preparation,
rhythm, movement, energy, composition, and more! As for fun-loving
experienced students, you will have chances to explore traditional flowers,
birds, animals, landscapes, and beyond. Special attention will be paid to
individual development. Let the spontaneous harmony and rhythm of Chi
(life energy) dominate and flourish. You will learn and master the beauty
of this timeless medium in no time.
This class is for both watercolor and Chinese painting students. No
painting experience required. All levels welcome. Zoom* information and a
materials list will be sent upon registration. Visit
