Participants will experience different Chinese artistic tools, such as brushes, rice paper, ink, and colored ink, and basic traditional Chinese brush techniques.
They will be instructed, by a professional, on how to hold a brush properly, control the motion of the brush, and balance the mixing of water and ink. Through the study of water, ink, Chinese painting pigment, and treated rice paper, students will become familiar with the amazing potential of this special medium. Participants will learn the basic traditional brush techniques of “Four Gentleman” (plum, orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum), panda, and fish. They will create their very own evocative brush painting on rice paper and take it home afterward!
