Frank Liao 
Mark your calendars please.

Frank Liao will give a series of ABAG workshops April, May and June! These workshops will provide brush artists a deeper level of learning on a single subject, suitable for beginners as well as those more experienced. In Franks' own words:

"I have divided the content into three parts/classes to teach.  I hope students can learn to understand and control the basic Chinese brush flower and birds painting methods through these lessons."

First lesson (April/ 21 /2020): Flowers.  Based on plum blossoms, focus on how to use brush, water, and color.  Then from the structure of plum, extending to pear flowers, cherry flowers, begonia flowers, campsis flowers, rhododendrons, Cattleya orchids and others.  This will help students learn how to slightly change the brush, water and colors.  The purpose of this class is to let students understand the basic brush principles to paint flowers.   

The second lesson (May /19/2020): will concentrate on how to paint the various leaves, its color change processing etc.  

The third lesson (June /16/2020): will focus on branches.  I will introduce the painting method for bamboo, then extent it for learning the painting methods of branches of other shrubs and vines.  

In each of the above lessons, we will teach the basic way of matching the flowers, leaves, and branches. Insects and birds will be arranged in each lesson if there is extra time.
