Please Meet Henry Li


Henry Li will be one of the instructors at the Artful Gathering event this summer.  He will be bringing us  the beautiful and time honored tradition of Chinese painting in a Sumi Ink and Watercolor on Rice Paper class.  This class is structured so that beginners to advanced students may join.

Being an online art teacher and art supplier, Henry has  found himself a full-time job with thousands of fans and students all over the world. His artistic family members includes his wife Victoria, who teaches Chinese at Pomona College, also paints as her hobby; his mother-in-law, a retired Chinese professor, who practices her calligraphy every morning, and his daughter Amy who is a senior college student majored in art.

Henry has an amazingly impressive and varied  background and it is my hope that you will visit our Instructors bio page over at Artful Gathering and read about this fascinating and unassuming gentle man.  Henry works tirelessly to make his painting videos look effortless, spontaneous and joyful. Meanwhile, he has started to explore new materials and techniques that will give this centuries old art form a new life.  You can also visit Henri Li at Blue Heron Arts.
