Chinese Painting Workshop for School Students
Painting in the traditional style is known today in Chinese as guó huà, meaning 'national' or 'native painting', as opposed to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century.
Traditional painting is done with a brush dipped in black or colored ink. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made are paper and silk. The finished work can be mounted on scrolls, such as hanging scrolls or handscrolls.
This workshop introduces the traditional art of Chinese water-colour painting and results in beautiful pieces of art.
