Chinese Artistry

Today we had Chinese artist, Deyu Cheng teaching us how to do traditional bamboo paintings...

Thanks to the NZ-China Culture and Education Exchange Association and Confucius Institute for bringing  Deyu Cheng to New Zealand, and being available to come with him to our school.

This was a fantastic opportunity and a great 'hands-on' way to increase our Asia awareness and the importance of being global citizens.

We all learned how to paint vertical and side strokes to create bamboo sticks and leaves.
