Chinese Dragon Online Painting Demonstration

Chinese Dragons – art demonstration with Heather Gray
To celebrate Chinese New Year join artist, Heather Gray, for a painting demonstration of a dragon inspired by a snuff bottle from Chester Beatty’s Chinese Collection. The bottle in question depicts a five-clawed dragon chasing a pearl and painted in shades of iron red. We will transfer the image to paper using a traditional bamboo brush, black ink and xuan paper but if you don’t have these at home any other art materials will work just as well.

In association with Dublin Chinese Lunar New Year Festival.
