About This Class

Chinese characters intimate a lot of students, but I think they are really fun! In this class, I want to teach you 3 basic Chinese characters and challenge you to create an artwork based on one of the characters ^-^

You don't need to have any Chinese Mandarin background to take this class! You can use any art medium to create your artwork. I will teach you essential concepts about the characters and show you my design process.

I am a language learner and an online 1-on-1 Chinese Mandarin teacher. When I am not teaching or learning, I will indulge myself in Korean dramas or Japanese anime. I also like to doodle every now and then :D I recently started watercolor because of YasminaCreates on Skillshare!
