Event Description

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the Asian Brush Painting program has been cancelled.  We hope to be able to reschedule for another date in the future.

When executed with masterful technique, a single ink brushstroke is capable of conveying vitality, delicacy, and contemplation—the essence of Chinese philosophy and spirit. It is this “life force” or chi (pronounced chee) that the artist aspires to capture and express through brush painting. Unlike European-trained artists, those trained in traditional Chinese brush painting techniques do not try to create a realistic rendering of the external appearance of a subject, but instead seek to capture its inner spirit. The essence of the subject is retained in the artist’s imagination, and it is this image that is painted in a moment of spontaneous inspiration.

Seating is limited and priority is given to those adults who have pre-registered.
