Many thanks to Todd for assistance Introducing Master painter Pu Hsin-Yu
Due to time limitation, I have not explained many aspects of brush techniques and principles related to Chinese painting and Chinese calligraphy at http://www.youtube.com/user/artvirtue and http://www.art-virtue.com/principles/index.htm. This is also because there are so many aspects and levels of knowledge and skills involved with the mastery of Chinese brushes. I believe by scientifically and systematically exploring the possibilities of brushes, a beginner as well as a practitioner of several years will understand the functions of different brushes and benefit from this lecture by saving their practice time and avoiding misunderstandings.
The topics will include the following explanations and techniques:

The Association of Oriental Arts was founded by Ms. Iweeta McIntosh about 30 years ago in Irving, Texas. The Association has periodic exhibitions and seminars to preserve the traditional Chinese brush painting and to study the underlying principle of Oriental Brush Painting - the philosophy of TAO.
Every year the Association has exhibitions and seminars at Jaycee Park Center for the Arts and Irving Arts Center.
美國東方藝術協會: 在北德州達拉斯大都會區的歐文市有一個由美籍人士組成的東方藝術協會（THE ASSOCIATION OF ORIENTAL ARTS），該會成立於一九七九年四月，由 Iweeta McIntosh 女士召集一些中國畫愛好者組成，該會每年有二次向各地邀請國畫名家來舉辦國畫講座及授課，平常也定期有國畫課程，會員們常組團到大陸杭州美院進修中國畫，每位會員都齊全的文房四寶。三十年來，他們對中國畫的熱愛有增無減。每年一月初，他們定期在歐文市的藝術畫廊舉辦年度展，由全體會員提供一年來之精心創作，聯合展出，達拉斯市中國畫家林伊文、謝鳳蓉等，也是該會之會員，有多幅作品參展，被該畫廊選來作為該協會本年度畫展之代表，印刷在歐文畫廊之宣傳單及請柬上，凡前往參觀畫展者，均可在入門處取得此精美之宣傳單，林女士多次應邀擔任該會之國畫課教師。在海外，能有如此多美籍人士，醉心於中國繪畫藝術，且學有所成，展示出來，真是直得大家前往欣賞、捧場，給予鼓勵。
