Oriental Brush Painting

Submitted By Avanthi Kanmatareddy

Fremont Art Association is announcing a unique opportunity to learn Oriental Brush Painting from accomplished artist Ming-chien Liang. The classes will be held at the FAA gallery every Thursday from June 5 to June 26 and on July 10. The class will not meet on July 3rd because of the Fourth of July weekend. Cost per class is $25.

With the pliant brush and sensitive paper, this high art form calls for the union of the technique that masters the brushstrokes, the artistic sensibility, and imagination. Brush painting can be calming and therapeutic on one hand and highly expressive, charged with emotions on the other. We will begin with building up the basic technique through Òthe four gentlemenÓ - orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum, and plum - to learn how to use the brush and create values from ink and water. Then various advanced techniques, subjects and styles will be introduced.

Ms. Liang is an artist of representational style in Chinese and Western medium. She is also an art historian with an M.A. in art history from the University of Massachusetts and specialized in Chinese art. LiangÕs more than twenty years of teaching experience includes instructing Oriental Brush Painting at Worcester Art Museum and teaching East Asian Art History at Wheelock College and the College of the Holy Cross. Currently she works and teaches art in Ichen Art Academy and in her own studio in Fremont.
