Us We Them Project | Trying our hand at Chinese and Oriental Art

Hello friends at Hua Mao!

We thought it would be awesome to try some Chinese art and then some Oriental art.

We first looked at some Chinese characters and we thought they were JUST BEAUTIFUL. Even though we know they make up your language, we thought they were so detailed and lovely, that to us, they were just like pictures! So we had a go at writing the Chinese character for ‘Crisis’ which we learnt came in two parts, first danger, and then opportunity.  We thought this was very very clever, because it made us think about those times when something upsets us, like falling over, or having an argument with a friend, and that perhaps it’s not just a time of danger, but a time that could lead to change or making better decisions. We thought this was a really cool way of looking at the situation.

After trying to paint the character for a while, we realised it was quite tricky! Our characters came out a little bit wonky and a little bit squiggly but it was really fun trying them out. We wonder if you can read any of them! Ha ha!

After that we painted cherry blossoms, using the bottoms of bottles. This was SOOOOO fun and we thought they looked really lovely in the end. We put them up outside the art room so everyone in the school could see them.

We are looking forward to seeing your ‘Australia’ drawings.

Speak soon Hua Mao!

华茂的朋友们,你们好!

学些中国艺术,然后再学些东方艺术,我们想这太好了。我们首先观赏了几个汉字,他们简直美极了。虽然我们知道这些汉字构成了你们的语言,我们还是认为它们是

如此的微妙和秀美,在我们看来,它们就像一幅幅图画!于是,我们试着写一写 “Crisis”的汉字,并且得知它有两个意思,一个表示危险,另一个表示机会。我们认为

这种字与字之间的意思组合结构实在是巧妙极了,因为这个词语使我们想到了心烦意乱的时候,譬如,摔了一跤,与某个朋友争论不休之类的烦心事,这也许不是危险

的时候,而是导致一种改变或者做出更好决定的时候。这点,我们认为,是看待处境的一种很明智的方法。

试着写了一会儿汉字之后,我们意识到汉语文字非常深奥难学!我们的英语字母却显得有点不够方正平稳,有些弯弯曲曲,可是,练一练汉字书写趣味十足!不知你们

是否能够把这些汉字一一都认读出来!哈哈!

汉字书写练习之后,我们用瓶子底部画了樱花,这种画法乐不可支,最后,我们认为这些樱花看上去非常美丽。我们在艺术教室的外面把樱花作品展示了出来,这样,

学校里的其他所有学生都能够欣赏到美丽的樱花了。

我们正期盼着欣赏你们‘澳大利亚’绘画作品。
