These four sessions will introduce students to old Far-Eastern painting traditions. Students will learn to draw and paint mountains, trees, different plants, streams and waterfalls while working in ink and watercolor with calligraphic brushes. We will work on creating a peaceful atmosphere in the artwork with foggy perspectives and mountain skylines vanishing in the background. There will be class discussions and lectures on topics like format and composition and the unique difference between Eastern and Western classical landscape painting. The instructor will demonstrate different techniques.
Voronin is an art teacher and artist from Moscow. His drawing and watercolor painting skills were acquired from the classical methods he learned at the Academy of Architecture, where he worked as a visual arts instructor for eight years after completing his studies. Voronin has also worked as an interior designer and muralist. In his own work he has been focused on city views, landscapes and architectural fantasies using watercolor, ink, pencil and related mediums; constantly experimenting with different techniques, styles and materials.
