*Postponed* Chinese Painting Class with Jason Alster

November 7, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EST


This event has been postponed due to illness. Please check back later!

Chinese Bamboo Brush Painting. The bamboo is said to represent China, strong but also flexible. Chinese Brush painting is meant to be more than a representation of an object; it is also a symbolic expression. Painting the leaves and stem, but never the whole plant, bamboo painting is all about the beauty of line. You will be amazed at all the different qualities of line you can achieve with just one brush, simply by changing the angle and pressure with which you hold it.
Chinese bamboo brush painting lessons include brush stroke techniques, brushes used, making Chinese ink, using rice paper composition and space. People have used the designs produced on shirts, cups, business cards, towels and more. All materials included.
