Brush Painting Classes 

Brush painting is a magnificent experience that can be learned under the guidance of Nan Rae; previous experience is not required.

In all sessions, Nan Rae will have you produce your first painting at your first workshop. For in-person classes, each student gets plenty of personal attention and printed lessons help you practice at home. For the online classes, when you register, you’ll receive an email with the lesson handout (PDF), which you can view on your device or print at home. You’ll learn to paint like a true literati. 

Nan Rae teaches the rapid, oriental brush strokes that enable you to capture a sweep of pure and energized freedom in a contemporary, robust, and exhilarating form.
