I bought this to help me supplement a lesson on Chinese Brush Art that I was teaching for 5th graders. The book is simple to understand, has good detail for each individual step, and is perfect for this age group. Best of all, it has step-by-step instructions for different paintings, beginning with simple projects and becoming increasingly more complex with each project drawing on previous skills. The kids enjoyed looking through the book and finding ideas to supplement their work. I highly recommend it for older elementary age children; however, I think with patience on the part of the instructor as well as the child, a younger child could benefit from this book, as well.

I was able to enjoy this book via my Kindle Apps on several devices

No matter what age or skill level you have achieved, you will not be disappointed. From the graceful beauty of the artwork within to each carefully worded, easily understood step that guides, this extraordinary journey is a well worth anyone’s time. This book peels back the layers, revealing the soul of this elegant art and its tools. By understanding the philosophy, point of view, and choice of tools, I know that I will never view another piece of Chinese brush painting in any museum the same way. This book has opened the door for me to not only learn to create, but forever appreciate this ancient art form in all its elegant grace, beauty, and meaning.

Good book for beginner with some artistic painting skills

I bought this book for my 9 year old daughter. She does have better than basic painting skills and she has found this book to be a great reference. It clearly showed how the Chinese brush strokes are to be made. Some of the landscape pictures, such as pine trees and mountains are more advanced and probably not able for a child to do. She does use this book for examples of leaves, flowers, and birds so we consider it a good reference. If you are a self starter and can learn from following a book you would be successful with the instructions in this book.

Chinese Brush Painting is not well known by western artists. This book gives the new reader an exceptional grounding in the theroy and practice of a painting style that combines delicacy and spirtual context seldom found in western art forms. The authors present a wide variety of illustrations and work practice to discover the depth of methodology and meaning in this thousand year old art style.
