Ning Yeh UCLA Extension Course
Chinese Brush Painting
821.11 Art 1.4 CEU $195

In China, a flower is never merely a flower nor scenery merely a place; each has its own legends, romantic stories, and symbolic spirituality. In this course, students explore the spontaneous style of Chinese brush painting through hands-on step-by-step instruction. The course follows the Hsieh-I (Depicting Idea) style developed by traditional painters of the 11th century and specifically focuses on the Po-mo (Throw-ink) method: "In order for a painting to show the vitality of nature, it must be executed in a lively way; hence, the movement of the brush is completed in a simple, dynamic, and powerful manner, seeming as if the artist is throwing color and ink on the rice paper." (Ning Yeh) Subjects covered include floral, landscape, and animal. Specific subjects covered may vary each quarter. Topics include detailed instructions on appropriate use of rice paper, brushes, colors and ink. For beginning to advanced students. Materials list sent prior to fi rst class. Enrollment limited. (Estimated additional costs for supplies $50-60)
