Class Experience

Students will learn the basic Chinese brushstrokes, how to hold the brush, and how to use ink and water. In each tutorial, there will be a different subject to paint, but the same basic brushstrokes will be used. 
For homework, I would like students to find a subject that inspires them and try to paint it with the basic brushstrokes. Also, for homework, students can paint the subject we have learned in class but practice painting it again.
