Forget western painting “rules” and embrace the creative freedom and life lessons of the meditative practice of Chinese Brush Painting! Explore the “4 Treasures” (bamboo brush, ink stone, ink stick, rice paper) with artist Susan Novak as you learn to paint traditional motifs such as bamboo and plum blossom along with contemporary subjects. Students will combine sumi ink with watercolor, learn mounting techniques and salvage paintings to create their own greeting cards. (Chinese brush painting is also a wonderful skill to master for potters looking to embellish their clayware as well.)
Registration and payment due by September 26!
