Student's Reflections.....After taking Chinese Brush Painting & Meditation. Thank you students!

I have been taking Chinese Brush Painting and Meditation from Suemae Lin Willhite since January, 2013. With no prior formal art training, I've been delighted by what a joyful process it's been to start from making "Happy Dots"  with a brush and ink, to learn Chinese calligraphy, and then explore brush painting subjects including bamboo, orchid, butterfly and lotus with Chinese  watercolors. 
Suemae has such infectious energy and a genuine love of her art form.  Each class begins with a meditation led by Suemae, setting an atmosphere of peaceful spirit which invites the flow of creative energy.  She demonstrates each step of the lessons, and then works individually with each student at whatever level they may be.

How fortunate we are to have such an authentic teacher who lives by the principles of the art she is passing on to others!

I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning an ancient art that requires discipline and practice yet gives back a relaxing, rewarding experience.   Bette S. of Ojai
