Title:   Painting Through a Chinese Lens      

Course Number:      PAI 0007A
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

Western artists such as Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock and Ross Bleckner, have employed elements of Chinese calligraphy in their work.  Traditional Chinese calligraphy and painting have many applications in contemporary art practices. These disciplines connect varied art forms by building unique skills and by helping to develop focus, balance, composition and mark-making vocabularies. Through demonstrations and individual instruction, new students will learn several Chinese calligraphy words and study specific Chinese painting themes, i.e. "4 Gentlemen" including bamboo, orchid, plum blossom and chrysanthemum. You will create contemporary artwork with these techniques. For returning and/or advanced students with prior experience in Chinese painting, you will learn Chinese landscape and have the opportunity to refine the skills of the "4 Gentlemen."  As with new students, you will create contemporary artwork with these techniques. Throughout this course, all students will apply traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy to your own contemporary art practices.
