Chinese calligraphy and brushwork in Year 7’s art immersion day

Year 7 were joined by visiting artist Qiong Wu today for their art immersion day. Qiong Wu, our art teacher Rachel, and Mandarin teacher Feng worked with the pupils on Chinese calligraphy and brushwork techniques. The students’ work was full of life and expression and their understanding of Chinese art, narratives and the origin of some letter forms has been enriched by today’s experience.

Here they are exploring the way that the image of a bird on a branch has evolved into the character for “bird”.
