While at UA, Professor Yang gave guest lectures on Chinese art, and gave demonstrations of Chinese painting and calligraphy techniques. Here he is demonstrating painting to Asian Studies students in Manly Hall, to Survey of Asian Art students (ARH 254) and during Alabama’s Homecoming festivities on the main quad.
