5 Week Landscape Brush Painting Class – Starts 19 January 2021

This class will be delivered digitally using the online platform Zoom. To optimise the learning experience a maximum capacity has been set per group – so space is very limited! Please note bookings will close 7 days before the term start date.

‘The unique style of Chinese landscape painting was developed more than a thousand years ago, and has been honed to perfection by generations of master painters.’ Landscape, literally translated as ‘mountain and water’ (山水, shānshuǐ), is one of the most popular subjects in Chinese brush painting.

This 5 week course will start by introducing the history of Chinese landscape painting, before exploring the most common Chinese soft brush and ink techniques. Participants will have the option to select from a range of subjects demonstrated by the tutor.

Live demonstration will be provided during the class. There will be additional homework after each session and the tutor will also provide individual email feedback, including technical support to deal with relevant queries. This course is suitable for both beginners and advanced students.

The fee is £85 for this 7.5 hour course, running on Tuesday mornings between 10.00am – 11.30pm, from 19 January 2021. There is a concession rate of £75, which is offered only to full time students and UoE staff.

Please also allow up to £35 if you don’t have your own art materials. The tutor will provide guidance on purchasing the materials after registration. A minimum of five students are required to ensure the class goes ahead.

To secure one of the limited spaces on this course, please use the University’s ePay system.

This course will be led by Chi Zhang – an experienced instructor, shortlisted for ‘Sky Art Landscape Artist of the year 2015’, whose work has been projected across Edinburgh castle during the 2015 Military Tattoo.
