Discover China Through Art (DCTA), China Institute Gallery's innovative art education program for groups, will introduce participants to our new exhibition Art of the Mountain: Through the Chinese Photographer's Lens. Each group visit consists of a three-part program featuring an introductory video presentation, a docent-led gallery tour, and a hands-on art workshop, all of which can be adapted for different age groups and interests.

In Chinese legends, mountains are pillars that hold up the sky. Long revered by the Chinese, mountains and their importance in Chinese history, art, culture, and life will be reviewed in three distinct sections through more than 63 works by 26 photographers. By examining the impact of mountains on Chinese culture and its traditional aesthetic, this exhibition reveals the many ways Nature has played-and continues to play-a defining role in Chinese geography, history, culture, and the national psyche. Our hands-on Chinese landscape painting workshop provides rare opportunities to learn and apply fundamental Chinese ink and brush techniques.
