Virtual – Chinese Brush Painting (all levels)

June 17 @ 1:00 pm - July 8 @ 2:30 pm


Chinese Brush Painting (all levels)
Rockland Center for the Arts
4 sessions: Wednesdays, 1:00-2:30pm June 17- July 8
Instructor: Jane Chang, Fee: $150

Originating in 8th century, Chinese Brush Painting is one of the most renowned approaches to painting. It unifies what were considered the highest forms of creativity in China: painting, poetry, and calligraphy. Known as the “Three Perfections,” the painting style combines these disciplines to depict nature as a stylized extension of the emotional world of the artist.

For the beginner, you will learn the “Four Gentlemen,” each a representative of the four seasons: wild orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum, and plum blossom. We will focus on the quality of strokes, color preparation, rhythm, movement, energy, composition, and more! As for fun-loving experienced students, you will have chances to explore traditional flowers, birds, animals, landscapes, and beyond. Special attention will be paid to individual development. Let the spontaneous harmony and rhythm of Chi (life energy) dominate and flourish. You will learn and master the beauty of this timeless medium in no time.

This class is for both watercolor and Chinese painting students. No painting experience required. All levels welcome. Zoom* information will be sent upon registration. For more information or to register visit: www.rocklandartcenter.org
