Materials List for UCLAx Summer 2020 

The following materials are recommended for the 11-week Summer 2020 UCLAx Chinese Brush Painting program (Art X 430).


Chinese (or Asian) Brush Painting uses Chinese brushes, rice paper, and ink. Watercolors are also used. However, watercolor paper and watercolor brushes are NOT traditionally used. 


For best results, the following Chinese Brush Painting materials may be purchased online from Oriental Art Supply (OAS). Alternatively, feel free to use your own Chinese Brush Painting supplies or obtain comparable items elsewhere.


For first-time students, CHOOSE ONE of three options. Click the “Description +" button on the OAS page for details.

5) OPTIONAL for Wet Mounting Lesson

Typically, we do this lesson in the classroom and I provide the materials. However, for the live-on-line class, students may obtain the following items. You will also need a smooth flat laminate surface/tabletop. However, if you do not have these items, it is also fine to just observe the class demonstration.
