2022 Summer Painting Class

In the summer of 2022, we ushered in the first physical art summer camp after the epidemic. The main content of this summer camp is to learn basic watercolor/gouache painting. The students learned to use Western watercolor/gouache paints to create Chinese-style ink paintings. And experience the difference between painting on Western watercolor paper and painting on Chinese rice paper. As the so-called art does not ask anything!

excellent work

Painting Class Exhibition

      After spring break, its our Painting Class Exhibition. All the students selected their favorite paintings, arranged on a display board and brought to school.
        green, yellow, blue ... Each student "dressed up" his display board beautifully. The students in the painting class wanted to show their painting works and painting talents to teachers, parents and their classmates.
      _Some students have prepared their favorite works , but when I wanted to make a display board, I couldn't find the work. In a hurry, he bought a display board and started painting directly on the board. The scene of his concentrated creation was quietly recorded by his mother (see the picture on the right). Unique, creative work won the Best Design Award for this exhibition.
