All you need to bring are your paint brushes (can be purchased in local art stores). Our study trip is on less-treaded path, with peace and hospitality, twin-share accommodation included, half of the meals are included, to give you freedom to browse the night market, morning market and restaurants. The region is dumpling, pancake and seafood heaven. Most on-ground transport is included, with occasional need to catch taxi or bus for your own leisure. Our teacher will be Cheng, Shuai, the Head of Longkou Art Gallery. The paintings you see here are all his work. With Bachelor of Literature, major in Chinese Painting, from the Art Faculty of Ludong University, China, special academician of  Tonglu Buddhism Calligraphy and Painting Institute, China, Mr. Cheng holds many positions in local and regional artist and calligrapher and photographer and stamp carving associations. His paintings are all over every village and public spaces of the City. The study covers a brief history of Chinese Painting and Calligraphy, the rest is hands on with one-on-one mentoring on the main categories of Chinese painting and your choice of calligraphy style, and stamp carving if you wish. Teaching is tailored to students' learning interest. During our three days non-study time, we have a wide range interesting sceneries and activities to choose from, based on our time and interest.
