Asian Brush Painting

Experience Asian ink painting by using authentic ink stones, ink sticks, brushes, and paper while learning the basic strokes for the creation of bamboo images. Use the elements of line, value, balance, and composition to fill your paper. As a follow-up activity in the classroom, write a poem to accompany their work.

This activity connects primarily to the visual arts, social studies, and language arts curricula.
