Here we are, try to provide opportunity for children in London to access one of the oldest art forms 国画 guóhuà Chinese Brush Painting. It is so difficult to find professional teachers who can teach young children 国画。We are very lucky, found two amazing talented teachers. I am very looking forward to see children’s master pieces soon. We introduced Chinese calligraphy across the whole school two years ago. All children 5yr + get twenty minutes each week in the calligraphy room, learn to hold their brush with the correct posture, understanding the cause and effect relationship between ink, brush and Xuan paper. They learnt to think how and why more ink on brush would produce little chicks fluff in one dip. How to produce sharp and defined strokes without making “fluff”. The most important reasons of why we introduced it to children is we try to provide them with a way of mindfulness practice, a way of thinking that relax themselves, that allowing them to rest their minds, practice concentration, patience, and perseverance. I hope, they will be able to use it, when they feel too overwhelmed by the hectic world around them, to calm themselves, and allow their young minds to take some peaceful rest when they pick up their brush. It had been so successful. They all love it!
