Chinese Calligraphy Lesson

Uncategorized - 5 April 2023

Mariposa, Spitfires and Swordtails had a lesson of Chinese calligraphy with Kevin Zhang. The history of writing materials was introduced at the beginning, followed by the evolution of hieroglyphs and the structure of Chinese characters.  Then, every student practiced writing the Chinese characters of five elements on rice papers using a calligraphy brush.  This is a great opportunity for the students to learn the history and evolution of writing in oriental countries and also provides support to our current great Montessori lesson “Coming of Human Beings”.
