In this two day workshop Kurt will cover the history of China Painting, where it started, how it was developed and what has happened to it over the years. The main focus of his two days here will be on process, where the materials come from, which ones are the best ones to use and how it all fits together to end up with a better understanding of the process and the ability to use the material and technique with confidence.




First day will be an introduction and demonstration on the technique of China Painting. The history, how it is done and where the materials come from….. Kurt will demonstrate his technique and include some history, but primarily covering technique, material sources and how he creates his beautiful works. The second day will be hands-on, consisting of painting an object together from participants own personal sources or any imagery they bring in for inspiration.




All materials-china paints, brushes, etc. will be supplied for the participants. Students will need to come with a glaze fired piece to paint on, either something they have made and glazed (white or clear if porcelain) fired or if they choose, they could purchase a commercial piece of porcelain from an online supplier such as Rynne China or Dallas China.




*Workshop participants should plan to participate in group discussions and also bring a bag lunch each day, photographs , sketchbook(s), books on botany ,natural history, fashion magazines (for faces),bugs , shells, etc. Participants may also bring 5 images (digital or slide) of their work in any medium.


* Work completed will be fired and participants will be called to pick up when ready.
