On Exhibit: Happiness Children—Chinese Water-Ink Paintings

Chinese Water-Ink Paintings

This August and September we are proud to exhibit Chinese water-ink paintings from Mr. Xiaoyong Liu’s Children's Class. The unifying theme is Happiness. Mr. Liu’s students range from 6 to 15 years old. These students experience and learn about Chinese culture as they move the ink-filled brushes around the Xuan paper (rice paper), mix paint made of natural materials, and combine colors and shapes to create traditional Chinese paintings. Learn more in this video Mr. Liu filmed for QATV:
