Minhwa is a traditional folk painting style that beautifully captures Korea’s cultural heritage. Minhwa colourfully represents the perspectives, religions, symbols of daily life and desires, and folk mythologies of its time. It features robust animals as supernatural such as tigers, dragons, insects, and cranes, and colourful natural backgrounds with peonies, clouds, lotuses, water, or the sun. The unique symbolism blends Buddhism, Shamanism, Confucianism, and Taoism. Participants will pick one simple sample Minhwa and follow the instruction to finish one painting.


During the workshop, you’ll be privileged to paint on traditional Korean paper coated in lacquer. Our handcrafted brushes from Korea and China ensure an authentic and immersive painting experience.


Under the expert guidance of teacher Yeun, you’ll progress step by step, creating a high-quality painting and honing your skills in this cherished art form. The size of the painting will be A4 or A3.
