L1506: The Chinese Artistic Experience in HSSP Fall 2008 (Sep. 13, 2008)
Chinese art is not simply made up with brush painting, calligraphy, poems, and all those components you can name. It is, in a sense, one whole and unified experience--poems and poetic imagery worked into different forms of expression. Please come with us to work on this project: to complete your own piece of Chinese brush painting complete with calligraphy along the side. Your work of art will be inspired by Chinese poems we will read in class. No Chinese language experience is required. In this class, students will: * experiment with Chinese paintbrush and watercolor * read translated Chinese poems * learn basic pin-yin (Chinese phonetic) and read a Chinese poem * learn a few basic Chinese characters and write with a brush * experience how different artistic forms come together in Chinese art
