Shui Mo: A Chinese Painting Workshop for Beginners & Intermediate at the Yuchengco Museum

One of my frustrations growing up was not having the time to properly learn how to paint. This sounds really, really interesting! Some of you may want to enroll in this workshop … I wish I have the time and the budget :/

Press Release:

Traditional Chinese brush painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world, showcasing the harmony between man and nature. "Shui Mo" (water and ink) is a freestyle technique created using a brush dipped in ink and water and onto rice paper. 

Practicing Shui Mo expresses one's creativity and artistry, calms the mind, and gives a better appreciation for the beauty of art and nature. 


Students must have prior experience in Western or Chinese painting. 

Class Format 

Workshop students are given photocopies of the lesson for the week. The instructor demonstrates the lesson, describing the steps and the proper handling of tools and materials. Students then work on their own paintings, while the instructor checks on individual progress. Weekly assignments are given, to be submitted the following session. 

Workshop Fee 

Workshop fee is P6,500, which does not yet include materials. Supplies can be purchased from the instructor on the first session.

Date & Time 

10 Sat afternoons: Aug. 23, 30; Sept. 6, 13, 20, 27; Oct. 4, 11, 18, 25; 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Topics to Cover 

Chinese Orchid, Chrysanthemum, Morning Glory, Tulips, Birds


Pieh Tsai Shiu-Yuin (Arsenia Lim) maintains strong bonds to three places: China, where she traces her ancestral roots; Taiwan, where she received her university education and art training; and the Philippines, her birthplace and family residence. 

Arsenia Lim has been teaching Chinese painting full-time since the mid-1960s, and has been conducting her Shui Mo painting classes at Yuchengco Museum since 2006.
