Chinese brush painting

Chinese brush painting


Flowers and birds have been popular subjects in traditional Chinese brush painting for over two thousand years. This workshop will focus on the basic skills of how to hold a brush in the Chinese way and how to mix different colours on the brush for flower petals.

You will also learn how to paint a bird in just five strokes and complete a picture with plum blossom and a bird standing on a branch.

The workshop will consist of a mix of demonstrations and individual supervision. Suitable for beginners, this is your opportunity to create a beautiful piece of artwork.

Please bring:
A painting felt or an old towel to put on the table to protect your work.
Some saucers or a palette for mixing colours.
Water jar for washing brushes.
Some kitchen roll.

There will be an additional cost of £7 for materials payable to the tutor on the day.
