Arts Classes

Currently the school is offering art classes to meet the needs of different levels.

Art Classes start off with charcoal and pastel in the first term. In the second and third terms, pupils do classical Chinese brush painting by using the traditional system originated by the Ming dynasty scholar Chen Ji Ru. Pupils will learn to draw the plum, the bamboo, the orchid and the chrysanthemum, which embody all the main strokes needed.
