In traditional China, scholars and artists learned to do brushwork at a young age, painting was considered one of the three perfections in high art. Today we practice brushwork as a way to nurture our senses, and cultivate an appreciation for Asia’s venerated art form.
The San Francisco Public Library, together with artist and museum docent Pauline Tsui, invites you to attend a hands-on brush painting workshop. You will learn simple techniques to build brush strokes and fine lines and create a work of art to take home. Popular subjects in nature, i.e. flowers, plants, small animals will be covered in our lessons. No prior skills in painting is required, all art materials will be provided. Pre-registration is required, please contact the library for details.
