Chinese Brush: Inspired by Dunhuang
|Dates:||10 June 2017|
|Location:||The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, 19-22 Charlotte Road, London EC2A 3SG|
Bamboo-handled brushes, with finely graded natural hair, were used to paint the stunning pictures in the Dunhuang caves. Because Chinese Painting is a calligraphic art the images are very often outlined with the exquisite lines of this ancient art form.
Learners will be recreating some of those images. By exploring the brush strokes used we can imagine how the images were made all those hundreds of years ago.
All materials will be provided.
Jane Dwight learned how to paint in the Chinese way from Professor Chen Bin Sun in the Philippines. She then went on to do a diploma in Chinese brush painting offered by the Malaysian Institute of Art. She has been teaching for over 15 years in the UK and abroad.
Jane has also studied Lotus Blossom painting with the master painter Cai Xiaoli in Beijing, and constant updating of skills in classes with world famous Qu Lei Lei mean that Jane can bring new and exciting ideas and innovations to her students.
