Art Lesson with Chinese Calligraphy Artist

On the 17th and 19th of October, Silverton was grateful to have Melbourne based Chinese calligraphy artists, 84 year old Mr Yanchuan Yuan and two Chinese art teachers Mr Wang and Ms Wang, from La Trobe University Confucius Institute. They taught selected students Chinese calligraphy in preparing for the Silverton Art Show. We learnt how to paint a cherry blossom tree using a calligraphy brush with details from Mr Yuan. Mr Wang and Ms Wang taught us the skill of blowing ink to create the cherry blossom tree. Students from Foundation have now been introduced the Chinese calligraphy ‘Four Treasures of the Studio’ and practice the Chinese calligraphy brush on the magic mat.
