Traditional Chinese brush painting artists seek to capture the spirit of nature. The technique encourages imagination and asks you to paint what you want to see, not what you see.

Join me at Little Art House for a fun and relaxing evening of painting air plants and bamboo inspired by traditional spontaneous-style Chinese brush painting. You will learn about the materials, Chinese painting and the wide variety of strokes that you can achieve with one brush!

You will leave with 2 small paintings, handouts with step-by-step instruction and the special brush used in class so you can continue painting at home!

This class is open to all levels.
