Chinese Brush Painting

Mr.& Mrs. Chen

Taken from - Oriental Brush Works by Jing-Jy Chen:

" Orient art possesses spirit and captures the artist's individuality. There are two approaches to Oriental brush painting: the "outline" style - a refined, interpretive reproduction of the subject, painstakingly precise with fine lines and layers of color shadings; and the "boneless" style - a method that pays less attention to exterior detail, focusing more on the inner beauty of a subject. The artist begins to instantly integrate colors, fluidity and continuously; maintaining a free spontaneity, but demanding much mental and physical concentration. "

Jing-Jy Chen's Chinese Brush Paining art class meets each week on Wednesday evening at her home in Columbia, MD. Her students have widely varying backgrounds with regard to art experience and several of them have studied under her for almost ten years. Culturally the class has always had an international atmosphere including students native to China, India, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, the US and Viet-Nam. A typical Wednesday evening finds each student working on a painting of his/her own selection with Jing-Jy providing individual advice and instruction as needed. Most weeks several students bring various unusual snacks for the class to sample and Jing-Jy provides tea. Even though the students are serious about their art lessons, they also look forward to each Wednesday evening for an enjoyable social event.
