This live online bilingual short series brings students on a tour of China to iconic 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 develop the ability to express their own understandings, ideas and emotions through art. In addition, students will be exposed to or have the opportunity to reinforce Chinese language in a supportive bilingual environment. Throughout the series, students will create an art portfolio of watercolor illustrations including Chinese landmarks such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, or the Terracotta Warriors!
Join the series to unlock or further your love of Chinese culture, language or art, or all of them!
