Friday 2nd August to Saturday 3rd August
Landscapes are highly regarded in Chinese painting and are surrounded by symbolism. During this course you will
be able to paint a traditional Chinese landscape in 'Freestyle' but also have the opportunity to paint a 'Western'
landscape in the Chinese style. Please bring any photos you wish to use. Maggie will demonstrate how to back your
work for display.
Chinese materials are available to purchase from Maggie. A complete starter kit is around £20. Paper for the course
will be charged between 60p to £1 per sheet and from £2 per 'sheet' for silk.
