Rockland — Local artist Nanfei Wang will lead a workshop in Chinese traditional painting Saturday, July 21, from 1 to 3 p.m. at The Art Loft, 385 Main St., Suite 9 in the Thorndike Building.

Chinese traditional painting is based on the use of brushes, ink and Chinese painting colors on rice paper; and it uses subjects to convey artistic ideas and thought. In this workshop, participants will create the beautiful images of summer peonies and irises. Fee is $35.
