About this course:

In Chinese art and culture, a flower is never merely a flower nor scenery merely a place; each has its legends, romantic stories, and symbolic spirituality. Explore the wonders of spontaneous-style Chinese Brush Painting during two full days of hands-on, step-by-step instruction. Founded on classical brush painting skills, techniques, philosophy, and subject matter, by the end of this course participants will learn the proper use of Chinese Brush Painting materials, develop fundamental brush skills, and apply Chinese Brush Painting techniques to produce finished compositions.  
Learn from Industry Leaders

"In brush painting (as in life), the first stroke is a 'happening.' The rest are a series of adjustments building upon previous ones. Whether one is undergoing a career change, enhancing skills, or engaged in lifelong learning, Chinese Brush Painting is an enlightening practice in embracing change."
