Chinese Painting materials are not expensive. However, it is best to buy good quality. Western art shops often have only very basic materials and brushes, so we usually suggest that you try the Suppliers listed here.
Books are a good source of ideas and techniques, but no substitute for live tuition. Tell us where you are based and we will let you know the nearest classes and teachers, or scroll down here for a list of colleges with CBP courses, and links to CBPS member teachers’ websites. See here for a list of regional CBP groups.
