Chinese Brush Painting & Calligraphy

Children's Fine Arts



Chinese Brush Painting

Learn the basics of Chinese brush painting in authentic setting! Classes available for adults and children.

Chinese Brush Painting is taught by master artists Mr. Kung Shi and Master Chu, who provide authentic instruction for all levels, from total beginners to seasoned artists. This class offers a meditative respite from the bustling activity of New York City. There is a quiet, peaceful tone to the class that is based upon respect, discipline and commitment. Master Shi’s classes are conducted in English, Mandarin or Cantonese. Master Chu’s class instruction is primarily in Cantonese and Mandarin. A teaching assistant is available for those needing English translation. The step-by-step instruction breaks down painting to simple strokes and teaches a variety of subjects from standard Chinese watercolor painting.

Younger students begin by painting animals and flowers -- chicks, shrimp, daffodils, plum blossoms -- while more seasoned students can create layered water and mountain landscapes. Advanced students may move on to learn calligraphy, where they will learn to memorize and write the great Tang dynasty poems of classical Chinese literature. This is a unique opportunity to receive classical brush painting instruction in an authentic Chinese setting. This experience is sure to have a lasting impact upon one’s appreciation for visual art and Chinese culture.
