Chinese Ink Painting Courses

William Paterson’s courses in traditional Chinese ink painting for fine arts undergraduate and graduate students is the only one its kind in the United States. It is not a course of Chinese art history but a course of application of Chinese artistic theories in artistic practice. Emphasis is placed on painting materials, techniques, and a cultivation of specific artistic tastes in the appreciation of Chinese painting. These courses provide students the opportunity to study various characteristics of Chinese painting. It emphasizes understanding and appreciating the art through active participation in its creation.
