Chinese Watercolour Paintings Class: This class will teach traditional brushes and rice paper with modern techniques for the creation of a wide variety of Chinese painting, like serene landscapes, plants and animals. The instructor will demonstrate the techniques in a practical way as a part of the teaching methods. Our instruction, Mr. K.K. Li has taught Chinese painting in a community setting for about ten years. Some of Mr. Li’s former students learned to master the skills of brush painting and created works that became art exhibits and won awards. Art work cultivates one’s mind, builds confidence and promotes mental health for all ages. Constant cognitive exercise is believed to lower the risk of brain degenerating diseases like Alzheimer.
