Artist Dawn Wicklow

This workshop is perfect for anyone who has never painted before, as well as those who have experience in other mediums and are curious about this ancient art form. Dawn will teach you the basic differences between Eastern and Western approaches to art, You will be introduced to “The Four Treasures”, which are the ancient materials essential for painting and have remained the same for centuries: ink stone, ink stick, rice paper, and Chinese brushes. You will learn basic age-old brush strokes the Chinese Masters used which are taught through “The Four Gentlemen”: Bamboo, Grass Orchid, Plum Blossom, and Chrysanthemum.

Her work has been exhibited in a solo exhibit at the Jones House in Boone, NC, at the Alumni Exhibit at the Artist’s Cottage in Blowing Rock, NC, as well as various juried fine art festivals. Last year her work was exhibited in the City of Orlando Public Art Program at Leu Gardens.
