Chinese Landscape Painting class

with Roycroft Campus Artist, Janet Nye Vedder
Saturday, September 24th from 10:00am – 2:00pm

The Roycroft Campus – 21 South Grove St. East Aurora, NY

Join us on an artistic journey through art and culture as we explore traditional and contemporary Chinese Landscape Painting. This class will examine the work of Chiura Obata (art shown here) and the unique compositions found in this Asian style. Students will learn about the medium and techniques, including the Chinese brush strokes, ink and watercolor paint, to create expressive artwork through this beautiful ancient method.

Supply fee will cover paper, ink, Chinese brush, and a limited palette of watercolor paint. Students should bring a mixed media or watercolor sketchbook for taking notes and for practicing techniques, as well as any additional watercolor paint you may prefer. Lunch will not be supplied. Please feel free to bring a bagged lunch or something to snack on.
