We spent a most enjoyable morning at Fox Fashion‘s Media Preview last Saturday where kids were treated to a session of Chinese cultural immersion. Led by the capable instructors from Confucius Institute, they were given a brief introduction to the art of writing Chinese poetic couplets (对联). After being taught the basics of Chinese Calligraphy, the kids were eager to start writing their own names. They then each wrote an auspicious couplet for their home to usher in the Chinese New Year. It was heartening to see the kids engrossed in the calligraphy practices and getting to know their Chinese roots a little bit more.
The younger toddlers were not left out. They dabbled in finger painting with the colourful palettes prepared for them.
The older kids were very intrigued with finger painting and the instructors were more than happy to guide them. We love how Dana’s masterpiece turned out, especially with the Chinese seal that reads 吉祥 ‘auspicious’.
