Chinese Landscape Painting Class
  • Regular Class Dates
  • Private Class/Event Price
Many critics consider landscape to be the highest form of Chinese painting. The traditional Chinese artists painted pictures of towering mountains, using strong black lines, ink wash, and sharp, dotted brushstrokes to suggest rough stone; or painted the rolling hills and rivers of their native countryside in peaceful scenes done with softer, rubbed brushwork.

Come and join CCC's Chinese painting class. You don't have necessarily learnt Chinese painting before, just have to be enthusiastic and be willing to hold a brush. The supplies or the Four Treasures of the Study - the ink brush, ink, paper(made of rice & bamboo), and ink stone - are provided by us.

Where: China Culture Center, Chaoyang District, Beijing, China.

Landscape painting
literally in Chinese: mountain & water painting, is one of the three major kinds of Chinese painting (the other two are bird-flower and figure paintings. Viewing Chinese landscape paintings, it is clear that Chinese depictions of nature are seldom mere  representations of the external world. Rather, they are expressions of the mind and heart of the individual artists—cultivated landscapes that embody the culture and cultivation of their masters. Painting became a means of conveying the inner landscape of the artist's heart and mind.
