Chinese Painting Course

Our Chinese painting course provides a basic and systematic approach to traditional Chinese ink painting techniques. It introduces students to the use and care of ink painting materials. Studio practice includes instruction for brush strokes in the ‘Xieyi’ or ‘Spontaneous’ style, the ‘Outline’ or ‘Meticulous’ style, and the ‘Integrated’ style of painting.

Chinese Calligraphy Course

Chinese calligraphy is the art of writing Chinese characters. In our classes, students are taught how to use the brush, as well as being given an artistic and etymological introduction to China’s system of writing. These are important keys to understand and appreciate Chinese art, history and culture. Students learn and practice basic brush strokes and characters in a meditative, relaxed atmosphere. Classes often begin with a demonstration, followed by time for individual attention, allowing students of all levels to learn at their own pace.

Landscape Painting & Drawing

We hold off-site landscape painting and drawing workshops once a month, providing the perfect opportunity for students to hone their light, colour, and tonal skills within a plein-air environment. They will be encouraged to experiment and push their technical boundaries. Our tutors will be there to support our students with compositional and technical skills, as well as providing background information on the long and complex tradition of the landscape genre.
