Chinese Painting Introductory Workshop

国画入门工作坊

Have you always wanted to learn ancient Chinese art, but haven’t because you don’t speak Chinese? Have you ever been drawn to a delicate ink artwork, but wondered why it was done without the use of color? Do you have an impulse to paint with brushes and ink but don’t know how to start?

你是否想了解最古老的中国艺术却因为不懂中文而生怯?你是否曾经被一幅优美的中国水墨画吸引却不明白为什么画家不使用色彩?你是否有冲动想要用毛笔和墨汁勾画一幅作品却不知如何下手?

InkMoon Intro Workshop is specifically designed for you! Come explore traditional Chinese culture without having any previous background. You will be surprised at how accessible and enjoyable this ancient art is.

墨月入门工作坊特别为想了解中国传统文化的零基础朋友而设计,以最轻松愉快的方式带你领略这门古老神秘的艺术。

During a two-hour Chinese painting workshop in English, you will discover a new world: You will hear a brief overview of the history of Chinese painting, listen to interesting stories behind great works of art, explore painting tools which have been used for a thousand years and create your own artwork in the same way as the ancients.

在2小时的国画课程里,你将会进入一个全新的世界——从这门古老艺术的历史到伟大作品背后的故事,从沿用千年的书画工具到像古人一样画出属于自己的作品。

Through each stroke, you will discover a world of beauty that is beyond time and space.

透过笔墨波澜,你会发现人类对美表达千变万化,但对美的追求却东西相通,亘古不变 。

"This was an awesome class! I have a new appreciation for Chinese art now. I didn't realize it is so accessible and enjoyable!
Lucy did a great job laying out the fundamentals and then giving us lots of time to practice. I didn't feel rushed at all and I was really happy with my final result."

--Pauline from USA

"Lucy's enthusiasm towards Chinese painting immediately grasped my attention, making me want to learn more. Her vast knowledge on the subject was equally well balanced by her patience and simple explanations of the different types of materials, strokes, and styles used to create this art. In her class I felt safe, unrushed, and open to experimenting with this new art form!"

--Tysia from Canada
