Sumi-e and Chinese Brush Painting II

Join us on an artistic journey through art and culture. Chinese brush painting is a beautiful and unique style of artwork. Using only three simple tools, ink, brush, and paper, students will learn to create captivating artworks using the beauty and freedom of the Sumi-e brush line.  In this class we will build our Sumi-e brush stroke vocabulary, skills, and techniques.  Students will begin transforming these brush strokes into graceful forms of nature referred to as ‘The Four Gentlemen’, which are the four plants (Plum, Orchid, Bamboo and Chrysanthemum) that represent valued virtues and themes in Chinese and Asian cultures.
