Chinese painting is widely regarded the finest form of traditional Chinese art and reflects a profound philosophy. CKLC Chinese Painting Course with 8 lessons were offered this semester with the aim of facilitating our students to learn about and appreciate Chinese culture, and to pick up basic skills of Chinese painting. We are honored to have Macao famous Chinese calligraphy and painting artist Mr. Ieong Keang Sang as our course instructor.
This course is designed for students with minimum experience, allowing them to learn basic techniques including how to handle the Chinese painting brush with ink, to execute brush strokes professionally as well as to develop skills to draw different subjects, especially four-gentleman (plum, orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum), and in the final stage, picked up the Chinese painting techniques with colored ink.
By the end of course, students were expected to submit at least one piece of Chinese painting of plum, orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum, landscape or other subjects that fascinates them. The CKLC Chinese painting exhibition is based on students’ creation in this course.
