There is so much beauty in winter even though we have to brave its snow and ice. In this course, the instructor will demonstrate how to use the Chinese brush to paint the following winter images: the bitter-sweet berries or the poinsettia; the “Three Friends of Winter”: the pine, the bamboo and the plum—Chinese traditional plants which are tolerant of winter chill; and birds such as the chickadees, sparrows or the cardinals. After watching the demonstrations, students will practice the brush techniques and compose winter scenes with the images introduced. Beginning and returning students are welcome. (Painting supplies for new students, approximately $57, payable to the instructor at the first class.)
