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. Traditional Chinese painting is done with a brush dipped in black or colored ink; oils are not used. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made of are paper and silk. The finished work can be mounted on scrolls, such as hanging scrolls or handscrolls.

The class will be conducted in English. The supplies or the Four Treasures of the Study - the ink brush, ink, paper(made of rice & bamboo), and inkstone - are provided by us.

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

  • Bird-and-flower painting
    One of the three major kinds of Chinese painting (the other two are landscape and figure paintings). Normally, most bird-and-flower paintings belong to the scholar-artist style of Chinese painting. According to Chinese tradition, bird-and-flower painting covers "flowers, birds, fish, and insects". It can thus deal with a wide range of natural topics, including flowers (plants), fish, insects, birds, pets (dogs, cats) etc.
