Chinese painting is a traditional Chinese art form, using a brush dipped in water, ink and colour, then painting on silk or paper. The tools and materials include brushes, ink, Chinese painting paints, rice paper, and silk.
There are three significant subjects which are often captured in Chinese paintings: figures, landscapes, flowers with birds, and two primary techniques used by traditional Chinese painters: figurative and realistic.
In terms of content and artistic creation, Chinese painting reflects the ancient people's knowledge of nature, society and its associated political, philosophical, religious, moral, literary and artistic aspects.
At SixteenO’S Art Bar, our experienced teachers will teach students basic Chinese painting techniques and guide them to draw objects in Chinese painting styles.
