ycis-bj-chinese-brush-painting-articleOn 17 April, the Year 2 students at Yew Chung International School of Beijing (YCIS Beijing) were treated to a cultural workshop on Chinese brush painting in the Year 2 Foyer. Chinese Teacher Carissa Yu led the workshop, informing students of the history of Chinese painting, the variety of brushes used within this art and how each brush is held in order to enable painters to create different strokes.

In addition, Yu introduced the kind of ink and rice paper that is used in traditional Chinese painting and gave a step-by-step guide of how a traditional bamboo painting can be made. This collective knowledge was then taken into the classroom, in which students produced some of their very own bamboo paintings, using the equipment and the techniques they had been taught earlier.

Chinese Painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world, emerging in the Warring States Dynasty and evolving into its current form in which traditional Chinese and Western painting techniques have merged closer together. The workshop was highly informative and enjoyable for all students and teachers alike, adding to the already strong cultural knowledge the students have built this year in their China Studies Program.
