Chinese Brush Painting
Saturdays, April 24 - June 5 (excludes May 22)

Introduction: 1 - 3 pm (6 weeks)
One of Chinese brush painting's fundamental principles is to see the great in the small and the small in the perspective of the great. Four thousand years old, the brush techniques of this Chinese painting genre will teach and develop line drawing techniques, stylized expressions of shade and texture, dotting methods and much more.

Intermediate: 3 - 5
To achieve the form of Chinese painting is only the beginning. To attain its essence is a joyful challenge. The ancient wisdom of the "Six Cannons" provides an excellent roadmap to appreciate the poetic beauty of Chinese painting. They help us see more than you look at, and feel beyond what you see. Basic foundations of Chinese brush painting will be an asset to this intermediate course.

Public $185.00, ROM Member $165.00
Materials for first-time participants $25 payable in first class.
