Sign in in Stud.IP

In this tutorial, we will learn together about the art of painting with ink on rice paper using traditional Chinese techniques developed over a thousand years ago. You will learn to paint the classic subjects that inspired the ancient painters. Since many painters were master calligraphers, you will also learn to paint the basic strokes used in calligraphy to acquire the expressiveness of line that makes a painting energized and eye-catching. Of course, you will be expected to incorporate elements of traditional Chinese painting into your work. We will conceptualize and complete the artwork together.

This process will be the best practice of intercultural research, as well as all this is also an interesting experiment in art education.

The tutorial language will be English.
