The Yuchengco Museum will be holding the Shui Mo: Chinese Painting Workshop (Intermediate) for 10 Saturday afternoons from April 27-June 29, 2013, 2-5 pm.

Traditional Chinese painting, also known as “shui mo” (water and ink), is created using a brush dipped in ink and water, and dipped in rice paper. Practicing Chinese brush painting helps one quiet the mind and expand creativity, self-expression, and discipline.

Prior experience in Western or Chinese painting is recommended.

Class Format
Workshop students are given photocopies of the lesson for the week. The instructor demonstrates the lesson, describing the steps and the proper handling of tools and materials. Students then work on their own paintings, while the instructor checks on individual progress. Weekly assignments are given, to be submitted the following session.

Workshop Fee
Workshop fee is Php 6,000, which does not yet include materials. Supplies can be purchased from the instructor on the first session.

Pieh Tsai Shiu-Yuin (Arsenia Lim) maintains strong bonds to three places: China, where she traces her ancestral roots; Taiwan, where she received her university education and art training; and the Philippines, her birthplace and family residence.

Arsenia Lim has been teaching Chinese painting full-time since the mid-1960s, and has been conducting her Shui Mo painting classes at Yuchengco Museum since 2006.
