Chinese Painting

Chinese Painting
This hands-on course will foster an appreciation and understanding of the aesthetics of Chinese painting and calligraphy. Participants will gain a broad knowledge of Chinese art, as well as the basic skills for further practice. Students will use gradations of black ink and some limited color, using the brush on rice paper. Participants will learn how to draw the "Four Gentlemen" series, which stands for the four seasons of the year: plum blossom, mountain orchid, bamboo, and chrysanthemum; and learn how to draw mountains, trees, and water in Chinese landscape painting. We will also cover the use of the seal and Chinese mounting. No prerequisites; no prior background in art required.
