ABOUT INSTRUCTOR

Jinghua Liu was born in Guilin, China, a famous city for the beautiful landscapes that surrounds it. At fourteen she moved to Beijing. Her grandparents were born into a family of scholars. When her grandfather died, he left the " Four Treasures of the Study" that are comprised of inkstone, Chinese brush and inkpad for our family. She used them to paint landscapes of Guilin. Her parents found she has a love of painting and they brought her, at age seven, to the Guilin city art center to study painting. She has continued her painting career ever since. Jinghua had the bachelor degree from China Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, at that time, She researches the use of painting to express Chinese culture and humanity, and she has painted a lot of subject from traditional Chinese myth and tale. She also has taught drawing and painting to children specifically orphans or others who have lost one or both parents. Jinghua thinks art can help people forget the pain, and it also creates an emotional release. She considers it can be a psychological treatment.
In 2014, Jinghua was beginning the MFA program of Academy of Art University, San Francisco. She is not confined to express the Chinese culture and art after she moved to USA. At the same time, Jinghua considers the beauty of the tiny from child’s eye. People are too busy, they don’t have time to find beauty from simple and small, so Jinghua believes we can study a lot from early childhood, and a baby’s eye view is quite different.
