Chinese Art: Traditional Brush Painting Workshop with Zhong-hua Lu
March 22 - March 24
Chinese brush painting is about the balance of nature and the inter-relatedness and complexity of all things. Xie yi hua is one kind of traditional style of painting. Students will learn philosophical, cultural, and technical aspects of this ancient art, a language of symbolic brush strokes. Working on rice paper with Chinese ink and watercolors, students will learn step-by-step how to control brush, color, and water to create natural motifs, from rocks, trees, birds, fish, flowers and bees to complex mountain landscapes. This focused practice has a meditative, calming effect on the artist. Beginning and advanced students are all welcome. Materials included.
