5 Weeks daytime Chinese brush paitnting class starts 6 May 2020 – cancelled

Landscape, Shan Shui, literally translated as ‘mountain and water’, is one of the most popular subjects in Chinese brush painting. Chinese painting techniques are not bound by Geographical limit; it can also be interpreted as Scottish landscape.

This 5 week course will start with the common techniques related to the Chinese soft brushes and ink. The course will combine with classroom based exercises and outdoor sketching and painting, weather permitted. Students are welcome to bring your own sketch book and some photos of your favourite landscape as reference. The outdoor sketching will take place in Abden House garden with breathtaking and unrestricted views of Arthur’s seat.

Students can anticipate completing at least one piece of Chinese painting artwork per class. Demonstration and plenty of personal attention will be provided during the class. This course is suitable for both beginners and advanced students.
