Minhwa (민화 / 民畵), literally translated as 'People's Painting', is a form of Korean Folk Art that emerged during the Joseon Era (1392-1910) and was produced predominantly by anonymous craftsmen and ordinary people. Minhwa paintings depicted folk legends, as well as scenes of daily life and meaningful symbols of happiness, longevity, and wealth. During this workshop, participants will learn about Korean Art History and Minhwa techniques to create their own traditional Minhwa artwork. Participants will choose a template from one of the varied genres of Minhwa and create their work on Hanji (Korean paper) using Korean pigment paints.

The workshop will be taught by Vanessa Lim, an Artist-Educator with over 5 years of teaching experience. Vanessa has exhibited across Asia and the UK, and was recently selected as an Artist in Residence with Tsukuba University’s CAIR Programme.
