This afternoon we took part in two different art activities. The first was drawing Chinese characters using calligraphy and the second was designing masks based on the Beijing opera.
In the latest instalment of the China Study Tour Podcast , Bella and Cynthia chat with Breyana and Emma about their experiences at school in Suzhou on day 2.
We had another amazing day at school today. It started with a whole school assembly where we introduced ourselves in Mandarin and were presented with our Young Pioneers scarves. At lunch time we taught students how to play AFL. In the afternoon we went to Pan Gate and did some drawings. For dinner we made delicious dumplings with our home stay families. We can’t wait to see them again on Friday.
Podcast episode #1 featuring Bella and Cynthia.
Today in Art we got to create picture frames made out of colourful air-dry clay. We used our creative skills to make designs including animals, super heroes and messages. It was lots of fun.
Tonight we walked down Pingjiang Road and enjoyed a number of special Chinese dishes, including the famous squirrel fish.
