More About This Experience

Located in a cozy cafe tucked away in the backstreets of Hanoi, this traditional Chinese watercolor painting class is a unique experience for those seeking a little change in pace during their travels. Your local instructor has practiced the art for close to 10 years and is an enthusiastic and engaging hobbyist whose company you will surely enjoy. Watercolors offer a lot of possibilities for creative self-expression. It is an art form that creates artistic representations, usually by brush on paper, using pigments that are water-soluble. Simply, the colored blocks are swiped with a wet brush and the pigment transfers itself to the watered brush and thence to the paper. This class however takes the approach of Chinese watercolor painting techniques and form.

Beautiful and peaceful setting, in the Floral and Book Cafe. The teacher and his assistant were very helpful and knowledgeable and so I learnt a great deal, plus they have me a gift of one his paintings at the end! I highly recommend doing this class if traditional watercolour painting is something you want to try.

For a small fee they picked me up and dropped me off. I got to ride on the back of a scooter but it felt quite safe! The class was very good. It was held in an eclectic cafe which was fun to see. A beverage was included. The interpreter and artist did a great job of explaining it step by step. All the materials were provided. At the end the artist painted the class participants lovely watercolors to take home.
