Year 9 students are learning all about “Chinese Animation Movies” and their history in our Chinese Studies classes, including traditional Chinese art skills which are applied in modern animated films. Today, they went to Shanghai Movie Museum to explore this in greater depth.
During this trip, the students watched a movie talking about the history of Chinese animation, played with the interactive installations, and attended a workshop led by Chinese famous artist, Ms. Xia Jing. After listening to Ms. Xia’s introduction of Chinese ink painting techniques, the students created their own art work with brush and ink. The quality, skill and sensitivity of their works were commended by the artist.
With newly found enthusiasm for this medium after today’s visit to the museum, we are excited about next week’s Chinese Studies classes and anticipate some ‘animated’ discussions about the future of animation in China from our brilliant Year 9 students.
