During this experience, we will paint a Chinese clay figure called "兔儿爷 Lord Rabbit”—a mythical bunny sent down from the moon to bring good health to the people. We will discuss traditional culture, but you'll also get the opportunity to be creative with your painting and discover new possibilities for your own Lord Rabbit. Different colors in China have different meanings and this information is passed down from the older generations through word of mouth—something foreigners cannot learn from books. I will mix the class with some vivid fairy tales to help you to better understand our traditions.
We'll be in the heart of Beijing in Zhongguancun, where you'll not only enjoy the traditional feeling of the old city, but also see the energetic side. We'll be just a five-minute walk from the metro station near a shopping area. Detailed location information will communicated in a private message.
