Chinese Brush Painting with Yap Sin Guan

Saturday, 25 Nov 2023

Learn the art of traditional Chinese brush painting.

Mr Yap is a full-time artist based in Singapore with over 40 years of experience teaching and has taught at multiple venues such as the Tanglin Club, British Club, American Club and Raffles Town Club. Many of us are familiar with Western art mediums, having dabbled in using watercolour and oils in the past. However, with Chinese Brush Painting, a whole new world awaits.

Through the traditional medium, participants will be able to gain mastery over an unforgettable set of new skills, such as learning how to control and manipulate ink, colours and water on rice paper using fine-tipped wolf hair brushes. Within Chinese Brush Painting, there are endless subjects to explore. Under careful instruction, participants will be able to first find their niche within flower and bird paintings that feature plum blossoms, orchids, chrysanthemums, bamboos, peonies, carps, angelfish and sparrows, then move on to larger landscape paintings once they have attained a basic proficiency.
