Come access your inner artist by learning the art of Chinese brush painting and leave the class having created elegant waterfalls and streams.
Chinese brush painting provides a wonderful opportunity to closely observe nature. One key element of this distinctive style is the influence the materials have on form and technique. Chinese artists imagine themselves flying over mountains like birds to observe landscapes, creating a moving perspective. The goal is to invite the viewer to wander over and through the landscape. In this course, you will learn the simple landscape of waterfalls and streams.
