In this class, we are going to explore how to paint stones, trees and a boat, while continuing our use of traditional Chinese brushes and ink. We will also discuss portraying the movement of water in the environment.
Chinese traditional painting is based on the use of brushes, ink and Chinese painting colors on rice paper.� It is mainly divided into figures, flowers, birds, and landscapes. Traditional Chinese painting uses subjects to convey artistic ideas and thought. It is about three aspects of the universe and human life: figure painting represents human society and interpersonal relationships; landscape painting the relationship between human beings and nature, where man and nature are portrayed in harmony as an organic whole. Flowers and birds represent nature, in harmony with people. Artistic expression stimulates philosophical thinking about human being. These three aspects suggest a universal whole, bringing out the best in each other and convey the true meaning of art as art.
