Chinese Brush Painting for Adults: Squirrels


  • Pao Arts Center 99 Albany Street Boston, MA, 02111 United States (map)

We are no stranger to squirrels, but did you know that there are over 250 species of squirrels in the world?

Easily recognizable in parks and woodlands with their large, bright eyes, slender bodies and bushy tails, tree squirrels - the most commonly recognizable type of squirrels - are often seen darting and leaping across grass and branches, looking for nuts, acorns, and berries.

Capture these cute, animated creatures as they hunt for food in Chinese watercolor.

Materials will be provided. The fee is non-refundable unless the class is cancelled by BCNC.

Class will be held on Saturdays, November 2, 9, 16, and 30.

Register for the series by Saturday, October 26.
