Chinese ink painting, deeply rooted in over five thousand years of Chinese philosophy, combines external naturalness with inner emotion and always carries a symbolic message. By incorporating the Daoist principle of yin and yang, it creates a harmonious balance between opposites and thus attempts to represent the diversity of the universe in a compositional way.
The introductory course will be devoted to painting flowers and other plants, one of the main themes of Chinese ink painting. The choice of motifs is not random, but deeply connected to Chinese symbolism. The bamboo, for example, represents the grace of personality, while the pine tree is considered a symbol of eternity and longevity due to its year-round greenery. Other popular flowers, such as peonies, lilies, lotuses, can be combined with fruits and symbolise hope or specific wishes.
During the course, you will learn to paint individual motifs and combine them harmoniously in one picture. The workshop with Lili Yuan offers you a unique opportunity to dive deeper into the world of Chinese ink painting, to expand your artistic skills and to connect with the philosophical concepts that shape this art form.
Whether you are starting out in the art of ink painting or already have some experience, the course will inspire and enrich you. The workshop will run for a total of three hours. The material for the workshop will be provided. However, due to a limited number of participants, registration by email is required.
