University of Michigan Museum of Art-Multipurpose Room

Admission: $7 per person, all materials provided. Register in advance at or by calling (734) 994-8004.

Learn both history and technique in this unique workshop on the decorative painting tradition of Minhwa—or Korean folk painting—an art form that filled people’s homes as well as the palaces of Korea. Participants will:

  • Explore in depth Lotus and Carp, a magnificent 19th century example of Minhwa on view in the gallery with Natsu Oyobe, Associate Curator of Asian Art at UMMA.
  • Try your hand at learning the special painting techniques and imagery with two guest artists from Korea, Chang Soo Song and Jung Ye Nam.

This workshop is designed for adults and families with children 13 and up.

To learn more about the art of Minhwa, Professor Byung-mo Chung of Gyeongju University will give a lecture on Thursday, Feb 6 at 4pm in the UM Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery (Room 100).

More information about the residency of these Minhwa artists and other featured events.

This demonstration is cosponsored by UMMA.
