The emphasis is on the process! The Class will be introduced to the “Four Treasures” (The ink stick, the ink stone, brush and paper) and each class will begin with a demonstration then guided instruction on how to paint “The Four Gentlemen” (The lessons introduce the student to the four basic strokes groups). *Advanced Students will be provided individualized guidance, work at their own pace discovering “idea” paintings and advanced techniques.
