Hello and welcome to our cat painting course! I am very excited to present this course to you - it has been a long term project and finally is ready to greet you!
Overview & Objective
This course is designed for anyone who would like to learn about cat painting and is passionate about painting a cat using brushes. Even though it is part of the Oriental Brush Art (Chinese painting or Japanese Sumie painting) style, the actual course can be applicable to various art forms. The natural outcome after taking this course will be to use a picture as reference to paint almost any cat; If you practice according to the suggestions in the course, you can also paint without any references in the future - therefore even for digital art creators this course can be relevant.
We have a theoretical part and a practical part in the course structure, with downloadable slides, so that you can learn about the cats in great detail as an animal and be able to paint them directly without pencil sketches.
There are 3 complete cats that will be painted and explained to you from the beginning to the end, and there will be tips and tricks included in the usage of ink, painting brushes and the rice paper.
This course requires rice paper (raw or half-raw)
2-3 painting brushes
Chinese painting color (use what you have first is fine)
Other supplies (felt, water container, white plates)
The material part will be explained more in detail in the course.
This course is also the foundation to further animal painting courses in the future especially large cat paintings, which will come out in the coming months to meet you!
There is no such thing as “Just a cat.” - Robert A. Heinlein

Hi there, I am an English speaking (fluent) traditional Chinese artist who has been trained in these arts since the age of 5. Now living in Europe, I find it aspiring to share my knowledge with you, especially if you are seeking to relax your mind in an alternative way.
The courses will contain plenty of detailed practical traditional painting / calligraphy techniques that will help you form a solid base, develop your skills or master these arts. In my courses, there will also be useful information in terms of cultural relevance. Additionally, thanks to my two Master's studies and business school work experience, there will occasionally be useful content related to the Chinese business culture from an international perspective.
If you are an old friend of the Chinese art, welcome to join our art family; if you are a future friend, why not have a try at it with me? Look forward to seeing you!
