Sok-Chan "Pao Pao" Ng is from Macau (China). She graduated from the Fine Arts College of Shanghai Normal University and has been engaged in art education and creation in Macau for over eight years. She moved to Omaha in 2016 and currently focuses on oil painting, pastel and Chinese Calligraphy! Pao Pao showed a couple paintings in an art show at the Hot Shops. Her technique caught the eye of our President Katie Johnson, who could not stop staring at the unique beauty of these paintings. It was decided Pao Pao just had to show us how to paint in what appeared to be dabbing pointillism…the painting technique with a sponge!

This technique uses a sponge, fabric or wrinkled paper to create a texture that is rougher than a brush stroke. It is ideal for covering a large, flat area. While other materials are also worth trying, sponges are one of the most practical tools that help create an interesting trace of boldness.
