  • ART FOR HEALING 理疗艺术

Making art helps us to focus and be present.  It helps us to express our intense feelings beyond words and thoughts, and moves us into deeper ways of knowing our minds. This class works with meditation and music and guides with abstract lines, shapes and colors.  The result is a calming of our anxieties, allowing our inner guidance to lead us through the pains and challenges of the external world.

制作艺术有助于我们专注和存在。它有助于表达我们超越言语,思想的强烈感受,并使我们更深入地了解我们的思想。本课程使用冥想和音乐以及抽象线条,形状和颜色的指南。结果是平息我们的焦虑,让我们的内在指导引导我们度过外部世界的痛苦和挑战。

  • RECREATE THE MODERNS 参观艺术博物馆和创作

We will explore and draw inspiration from one of the city’s great art museums: exploring the exhibits together, taking in the works on display. As we walk through the museum, I will encourage you to think about what the pieces mean to you, and take note of any that speak to you especially clearly. After the museum, we will head to a nearby café or even outside—weather permitting—to work with our impressions from the exhibition. Here you will set about recreating your favorite work seen that day, reimagining the themes and techniques according to your own style and preferences.

我们将从这个城市的一个伟大的艺术博物馆中探索和汲取灵感:一起展览,展出作品。当我们走进博物馆时,我会鼓励你思考这些作品对你来说意味着什么,并注意到任何与你说话特别清楚的东西。在博物馆之后,我们将前往附近的咖啡馆,甚至在天气允许的情况下 - 与我们展览的印象一起工作。在这里,您将着手重新创建您当天所看到的最喜欢的作品,根据您自己的风格和偏好重新设想主题和技巧。

  • CHINESE BRUSH PAINTING CLASS 中国意笔画

Traditional Chinese calligraphic brush painting has developed continuously over a period of more than 5000 years. It is one of the simplest and most expressive of visual art forms. Using traditional iconic figures from classical Chinese culture, such as the bamboo tree, the wild orchid flower and panda bears, you will learn the basic techniques that can help you to touch and express your own vision of the timeless moment.


中国传统书法毛笔绘画在5000多年的时间里不断发展。它是视觉艺术形式中最简单,最具表现力的形式之一。艺术形式可以帮助您培养耐心和接受能力。使用来自中国古典文化的传统标志性人物,如竹树,野生兰花和熊猫,您将学习基本技巧,可以帮助您触摸和表达自己对永恒时刻的看法。

Abundance - Paintings by June Li

 Hotel Biron, San Francisco / July 10th - September 10th, 2018

"The flower doesn't dream of the bee. It blossoms and the bee comes"

This series is about the shift from scarcity to abundance. Scarcity reflects the limitations of fear, anxiety and doubt. Abundance reflects gratitude, peace of mind and responsibility. I want to share with you the abundance of living a simple life by choice, full of light and treasures.

Recreate Model art at MoMa

We will explore and draw inspiration from one of the city’s great art museum: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. We will walk through the abstract expressionist exhibition together. As we walk through the museum, I will encourage you to think about what the pieces mean to you and take note of any that speak to you especially clearly. After the museum, we will head to a nearby café or the park - weather permitting - to paint on a canvas with impressions from the exhibition. Here you will set about recreating your favorite work seen that day, reimagining the themes and techniques according to your own style and preferences. This experience is not a museum tour but focus working on abstract paintings and how they help you express your inner feelings through making visual art.

Expressive Painting workshops

Express your feelings. Tell your stories. Spirit up your walls. 

Drawing and painting exercise the mind to help you see the world in a different light. This workshop, through exploring lines, shapes and colors will help to expand how you think visually.  Beyond learning to draw and paint objects, it’s also a path to raise your awareness and awaken internal energies.  

We will visit 3 private modern art galleries in San Francisco. After you get fully inspired, we will go to my studio space where I will guide you work on an abstract expressive painting. At the end of the workshop, you'll have your very own art piece to take home and frame. I will also direct you on where to go to see highly selected art openings and events for the rest of your art time in San Francisco.

WISH TREE BY RECYCLED ART

I mentored students created a wish tree by recycled materials this year.  We collected recycled materials and found objects in the nature, such as junk mails, paper plates, falling branches.  Instead of buying products, students turned wastes into creative art projects to share with their friends and families. .  By complete our recycled tree, students became more aware to our environment, what they thrown away in a daily base and use their imaginations to transform junks to beautiful objects.  My goals for this course is to inspire students buy less, reuse and recreate, own less and live more.  We wish healthier life and a greener planet.

LIVE CALLIGRAPHIC BY JUNE LI

Calligraphic is life itself. When the brush hits the paper, it's birth.
After the brush left the paper, it's death. It lives in the moment.

PROJECT 1: WE ARE OUR OWN GHOST

We are our own ghost of our goals
and dreams. To deal with this enemy,
we forgive, accept, and be with it.
I invite audience for this adventurous encounter
to experience the darkness and the
deepest fear of our ghost.

PROJECT 2: LUST. CAUTION

I keep looking at these two words and try to write a description. 
I failed in finding other words more precise than what they are.
Therefore, I invite audience to complete this piece with me, 
accompany me trailing tendrils of ancient calligraphy between
lines and lines, strokes and strokes, to find their own answer
through being a witness. 

Please contact June Li for performances.
