Chinese Brush Painting is considered as one of the oldest living arts in the world.  Rooted in a rich tradition of more than 5,000 years, it is a fascinating and unusual art form. Each brush stroke is a defining move that cannot be corrected.  More often than not, the simplicity of a Chinese painting belies the complex and demanding process that the artist went through to produce it. Among all the subjects of Chinese brush painting, perhaps one of the most awe-inspiring is the landscape.  Chinese landscape artwork often capture the artist’s expressions of the heart, mind and soul through their renditions of sceneries in China.

Students are introduced to the basic elements, philosophy, concepts, fundamental techniques, materials used and composition, leading to a better appreciation of Chinese landscape painting as an art.   This class art exhibit is a showcase of the techniques and composition learned in the course
