Chinese Arts Workshop, Bath

Chinese Arts Workshop

at the Museum of East Asian Art 

Workshop with Chinese artist and teacher Ai Li Purdey,
introduces you to the basics of chinese calligraphy and brush painting.

Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world.  Painting in the traditional style is today known in Chinese as guó huà 国画, meaning 'national' or 'native painting', in opposition to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century.
 Traditional painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black or colored ink; oils are not used. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made of paper and silk. The finished work is then mounted on scrolls, which can be hung or rolled up. Traditional painting also is done in albums and on walls, lacquerwork, and other media.
