Chinese Brush Painting w/Linda Schultz



Nature is the heart of Chinese Brush painting.  It is intended to be a meditative and spontaneousart form, capturing the essence of an image or idea with very little attention to precise details.  Come and learn the basics for this meditative art form.  Using the “Four Treasures”, the brush, ink stick, ink stone and the paper, you will learn the techniques to create the “Four Gentleman”, the bamboo, orchid, plum and chrysanthemum.  Each “Gentleman” introduces a new stroke or idea and reinforces techniques already learned.  Continual demonstrations will be provided through out the classes, along with individual attention.

 Workshop:  Tuesdays, January 17, 24, 31, and February 7, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

Fee:  $165  (plus $35 for materials, if needed)
