Barts and the London is celebrated by its vibrant and diverse community of students. To advocate further understanding and harmony between students of different culture backgrounds, the Barts Language and Culture Society and the Barts Arts and Photography Society are proud to co-host a series of student-led workshops based on the archaic art of Chinese calligraphy and painting by using the classical four treasures of the study: the brush, ink, paper and ink stone.
The third and final workshop allows the students to put their ability to the test. Depending on what the students would like to paint on, we would provide paper fans or embroidery rings for them to create their own artwork which then can then bring home and show their family and friends, promoting what they have learnt over the course of these workshops.
We think these workshops would be a wonderful experience and opportunity for students to get to know each other, and also to know more about a foreign culture that they might have little exposure to.
