Live online workshop for adults: Ink Painting

Live online workshop for adults: Ink Painting with HoiShan Mak

The ink brush painting has a long history in East Asia: the goal of the painting is to capture the spirit of the subject rather than merely reproduce it. Join artist HoiShan Mak for an exploration of this ancient technique and to learn brush strokes, ink density and flow, and tonality of brush-and-ink painting.
