Dear You Art Project

Mail Art + Pen Friends = Dear You Art Project

The friends in China and the UK are "Hand in Hand"

2017, 3rd Grade, China, Dear You Art Workshops, United KingdomArlene TuckerComment

In this activity, the teacher first talked about the form of weaving. Then the teacher presented some pictures of weaving artworks, which made children understand it well. Next, teachers and children had a discussion on how to do weaving artworks. Children said there were two pieces of paper that were horizontal and vertical. They could be weaved with one press and one pick. The art teacher Miss Liu Chunjuan and her students demonstrated at the front of the classroom, and students worked in groups to make it out. Finally, the teacher encouraged the children to give a name of the book. Some students said, we want to express our friendship between the two schools, so he took the name of ‘ Hand in Hand’.

Best wishes,
