Serious about it? The way to really learn is as old-school as the art-form itself – seek out your favourite ‘shi fu’ and approach him or her for an apprenticeship.
Like to learn more? Read as well as draw! The human anatomy is incredibly intricate, so Figure Drawing: Design and Invention by Michael Hampton is one of the best tomes around for understanding how to draw, well, us. Also, the late American illustrator Andrew Loomis has a fab series on drawing, which is available on bookdepository.com.
Want more? The industrial complexes of Fo Tan and JCCAC offer regular classes in all manners of disciplines. Go online and seek more information.
Where can you buy supplies? If you’d like to branch out on your own, try Artland (artland.com.hk) on the island, or Hong Kong Art Supplies Professional in Mong Kok (call 2390 0228).
Want inspiration? Check out the maze of shops at PMQ (pmq.org.hk), including Flow + Living, where local artisans’ ceramics are on offer.
