Chinese Dragon Online Painting Demonstration

Chinese Dragons – art demonstration with Heather Gray
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.

This video will premiere at 7:30pm on 18 September.
