Want to learn Chinese painting at home?

Introducing

the dance of the eye and the hand

These instructional videos with printable models are based on the concept that to learn
Chinese brush painting one must train not only one’s hand but one’s eye as well.
For complete information about the dance of the eye and the hand,
with videos, pdf models and fee structures, see the distance learning page.


              click above graphic for video
The understanding is that continued learning is a tension 
between what the eye can see and what the hand can do. 
 
And that the dance of the eye and the hand is always in play.  
 
That tension is always there. 
Mastery is a process. 

Not a destination.

Start at any level.


Move between beginning exercises
and more advanced as you desire. 

Go forward, trying new things.


Go back to review or strengthen beginning skills.

]The Three Friends of Winter
The Three Friends of Winter

The Chinese celebrated the pine, bamboo and plum together, as they observed that these plants
do not wither as the cold days deepen into the winter season unlike many other plants.   Together
they symbolize steadfastness, perseverance and resilience.
