DESCRIPTION:

Join us to master the beautiful art of colouring in Chinese gongbi style.

Gongbi is a realistic style of classic Chinese painting; its name means “tidy or meticulous brush strokes”. It’s famous for precise, careful and fine brush technique and vivid, bright colors with rich hues. Traditional materials used in this type of painting were  ink and pigments on rice paper or silk.

Please visit here, here, and here to see some examples. 

We offer you a comprehensive, detailed 8-week course, consisting of two stages; the first one, Brush Line Mastery, focuses on learning brush line drawing which is a foundation of gongbi painting. You can find the full description here.

The second part, Layered Colouring Workshop, focuses on a colouring technique used in this style of art to create vivid, rich colours.

During our class, you can master a new skill and deepen your knowledge about art, but you also have a unique opportunity to have a calming and meditative experience. Gongbi painting requires a lot of focus and careful attention to detail, which can help get away from the stress and worries of life. 

Join us at this workshop as a painter to experience it yourself; or, if you don’t feel quite ready yet, we encourage you to come in as a viewer. That way, you get a chance to see the process of creating a beautiful piece of art and learn something new about Chinese culture. In the past, people told us that witnessing a gongbi painting coming to life was a therapeutic and calming experience for them. 

PAINTING MATERIALS

  • Three Brushes: a fine brush for line drawing, two medium brushes for colouring.
  • Rice Paper: The type we will use is alum treated for Gongi paintings.
  • Oriental Ink: At this workshop, we will use ready-made oriental ink.
  • Chinese Pigments: similar to watercolour, but contains adhesive substances.

You will also need a porcelain plate for mixing colours, bowl of water and some kitchen towels. More details will be sent out before the workshop.
