Traditional Chinese painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black or colored ink; oils are not used.

Our classes will gradually increase in difficulty, and feature such subjects as swallows, bamboo, wild orchids, plum blossoms, pandas, horses, peonies and more.
