Why should I take this course?
Landscape, Shan Shui, literally translated as ‘mountain and water’, is one of the most popular subjects in Chinese brush painting.
Chinese painting techniques are not bound by Geographical limits; they can also interpret the Scottish landscape. Taking inspiration from the beautiful view from Abden house, the main building of Confucius Institute for Scotland, this course will mix classroom-based exercises and outdoor sketching and painting, weather permitted.
The class includes a live demonstration. The tutor will also ensure that the students can effectively use the techniques in their artwork.
About the teacher:
This course will be led by Chi Zhang – an experienced instructor, shortlisted for ‘Sky Art Landscape Artist of the year 2015’, whose work has been projected across Edinburgh castle during the 2015 Military Tattoo.
