Traditional Chinese Brush Painting
Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world! Students will learn how to use a Chinese brush and ink to paint different animals, flowers, leaves, and bamboo. The connection of the brush and ink to the paper is both satisfying and challenging. Students create their own painting after the first class, and improve their painting skills and creativity throughout the session.
Alan Cheng S-Lun began studying Chinese brush painting over 40 years ago under Master Chow Yat-Fung. Mr. Cheng was named Fellow of the study of Chinese brush painting at the University of Hong Kong, and Commissioner of the Antiquities Advisory Board of Hong Kong. Recently, he has received civic awards in San Francisco for his effort in promoting Asian art and culture.

From Dynasty to Democracy: How Chinatown Changed America and the World
Chinese sojourners were critical to the development of early California, establishing our state as an agricultural powerhouse
and paying unfair taxes that funded up
to 50% of California’s state budget. Yet,
Chinese are the only group to be specifically banned from immigrating to America,
and hundreds of Chinese communities
across the western U.S. were attacked and
burned down in order to drive Chinese out.
This eye-opening course details the hidden
history of Chinese in California and offers an ultimately inspiring story of how we
have progressed from brutally competitive
times to an era of increasing human rights.
