Class Descriptions

Chinese Brush Painting
Students will learn techniques to portray a rich diversity of subjects from flowers, trees, bamboo, birds, animals and insects to grand landscapes. Students will paint with ink and watercolor on rice paper with emphasis on brush control and composition.  

Chinese Calligraphy & Brush Painting
Calligraphy and painting are inseparable disciplines in Chinese art. In conjunction with learning Chinese ink and brush painting, students will learn calligraphic techniques for various scripts (such as Large Seal, Small Seal, Li, Running, Running-Grass and Grass styles) with emphasis on Standard script. Knowledge of Chinese language or characters is not required. (Students may choose to focus on painting, calligraphy or both.)  

Advanced Chinese Brush Painting
Students will learn advanced techniques developed by Chinese masters—past and present. This course aims to harmonize classical techniques with more contemporary ones, allowing the individual artist to adapt these universal lessons to advance his or her own artistic practice.
