Rachel’s Art class and Shannon’s Organize Your Life class took part in an incredible Chinese brush painting workshop with Dr. Lien Chao and Irene Hung. Students learned about the history, materials, and techniques behind this unique art form, as well as its underlying philosophical concepts. Through this engaging two-hour session, students developed their skills with the medium and had fun producing dozens of imaginative free-flowing paintings.
Workshops like this one demonstrate the power of the arts to foster self-confidence, promote cross-cultural understanding, and allow students to express themselves in positive and creative ways. Stay tuned for two upcoming shows that just might feature some art from this workshop, and a huge thanks to Lien and Irene for providing us with this valuable opportunity!
