This live online bilingual short course brings students aged 8+ on a tour of iconic Chinese cultural landmarks and symbols while learning art, culture, geography and history of China!
Through interactive, hands-on art projects based on watercolor painting skills, students will learn to draw landmarks and legendary figures in Chinese culture, while developing the ability to express their own understandings, ideas and emotions through art. Students will also be exposed to Chinese language in a supportive bilingual environment.
Throughout the series, students will create an art portfolio of watercolor illustrations including traditional Chinese festivals, such as the Lantern Festival, the Mid-Autumn Festival, and the Dragon Boat Festival!
