Online: Artist Workshop - The Path to Elixirs

An artist workshop that opens a window to Chinese alchemy of the Han Dynasty.

Monday, November 2, 2020 - 6:00pm

As part of Wen Yu's artist residency at CCTV, "Tofu Company," Wen will be offering a workshop that opens a window to Chinese alchemy of the Han Dynasty, one of the longest of China's major dynasties that was very enthusiastic about Taoism. The workshop explores Han portrait bricks, found in ancient tombs and excavation sites, showing the mythical and immortal creators/animals of the world that are longed by man. The Eastern wisdom may help us to reconsider the matter of life and death in the age of Covid-19. Drawing inspiration from Han imagery and MFA's Han Dynasty collections, the participants will create drawings with the artist and learn how to create animated Gifs on phones/iPads. This workshop will be conducted over Zoom.
Please prepare in advance: Pencil or pastel or charcoal, drawing papers, Stop Motion App (https://www.cateater.com)

1 session - Monday - November 2nd - 6-7:30pm - with Wen Yu
