What you'll do

Minhwa(Korean folk painting) refers to Korean folk art produced mostly by unknown artists without formal training, emulating contemporary trends in fine art for the purpose of everyday use or decoration. The paintings worked on a number of levels. They show figures from folk mythology and legends, symbols of happiness, wealth and health, and scenes of everyday life. You can learn how to paint whimsical Minhwa!

My studio is located near Hongik univ.st(line 2) and beautiful old railroad park.
Come to my studio for the experience.
I'll prepare a Hanji(hand made traditional Korean mulberry paper) mounted on a small wood panel(like a framed canvas), sketch drawings (you can choose what you’d like to paint) and every materials for painting.
This workshop will take 3-3.5hrs including introductions. You will learn unique traditional coloring techniques of Korean folk painting and make a beautiful artwork. It will be fun and relaxing experience. All levels can enjoy the experience. You can create and bring your own special artwork home after the class!!

I'm a painter based in Seoul. I studied Korean/Oriental painting at undergraduate and graduate school and I was a professor at an art college over 10years. Now I'm running my art studio in Seoul. I had 9 solo exhibitions, several group exhibitions and art fairs internationally. I'd love to show you unique techniques and beauty of Korean folk color paintings(Minhwa)! It's easy, fun and suitable for every level.

골목골목 흥미로운 곳들이 많은 곳에 위치한 작가님의 개인 작업실에서 민화에 대한 세심한 설명과 지도로 멋진 작품을 얻었습니다!!! 세심한 배려와 작가님과 함께 나눈 대화도 즐거웠습니다~~

Jieun is a really great teacher. I loved the experience of trying an different kind of paint to what I normally do. The experience has definitely opened up new interest in me to try this type of painting in the future. I am very happy with the painting I did with her guidance. I would recommend this to anyone even if you have experience with other kind of art or are just a beginner.

I have always been told that I can do art but I guess those who’ve told me that just weren’t good at teaching. My experience was fruitful. Jieun gave clear instruction and also background of oriental painting and I managed to completed one myself. If you think you can draw or paint, come and try. You may discover a new you.
