Minhwa: Korean Painting Classes

The Korean Cultural Centre UK is now taking applications for our free 10 week painting course, Minhwa: Korean Painting Classes


With this free course taking place weekly between 18th April and 20th June 2013 students will develop their skills and ability to paint like the Korean Masters of old.

Minhwa refers to the Korean folk painting of mythical and magical figures and other objects in a plain, straightforward and naive style often representing health, happiness and scenes from everyday life.

Minhwa, with its humour and wit first came to prominence in the 17th Century, was often the work of anonymous craftsmen or common people. The works featured popular themes such as cranes, rocks, water, clouds, the sun, moon, pine-trees, tortoises, insects and flowers. The most common figures were animals that represented power, such as the tiger, or the carp, which represented success. The paintings were drawn on traditional Korean paper (hanji) and on silk.
