Starts May 16th in Yarmouth (Tuesdays, from 6-9 pm for 6 weeks)
Explore the beauty of Chinese Brush Painting by using simple brush strokes to give an impression of your subject. In this 6-week class we’ll begin with the “Four Gentlemen” (bamboo, plum blossom, chrysanthemums, orchid), then we’ll apply what we’ve learned to paint peonies, irises, birds, simple landscape scenes, and more.
Fee: $195 for 6 weeks, or $40 per class. Call (207) 847-4060 for drop-in availability. Workshop fee does not include materials. A supply kit can be purchased from the instructor for $25. If you have your own brushes and paints you can purchase a kit with just the paper for $10.
