A Lesson in Chinese Art

Today, we were lucky enough to welcome teachers all the way from Southern China. One teacher in particular specialised in Chinese art and was able to show our children how to paint their own lotus flowers. The children even had the opportunity to use traditional Chinese brushes made from bamboo, sheep’s wool and wolves’ hair. These brushes were thick, and when used on their side, created stunning petals.

Here are some of the pictures of the children at work:
