About The Event
Class: Art History by Elliot Krasnopoler
The Aesthetic Mentality of Chinese Landscape Painting
Legendary Chinese landscape painter Guo Xi 郭熙 from Song dynasty said, “The landscape is majestic” (山水大物也). The depth and breadth of China’s landscape, the subtlety and the liberty, the virtual and the real; these are the representations of the lofty mind of the artists, which is sublime enough to encompass mountains and valleys.
Since ancient times, the Chinese people have always regarded nature as the entirety of life, and believed that mankind and landscape echo each other.
Song dynasty was a significant year for spreading tea culture in China or to Japan.
Class 2: Tea Art by Tea Tell Truth-- Jia Li
The bridge between human and nature is TEA.
We will teach tea history, art and tea health at class. Show case tea ceremony and share a cup of tea in a zen and relaxing atmosphere. Surrounded fragrance of Puerh tea will bring you to ancient China and let you feel the beauty of the art of tea-making, the subtlety of fermentation processing, the delicacy of the aroma. A real feast for the senses!
