In March, the Upper Primary Class of YWIS Rizhao went on a field trip to the Rizhao Polytechnic to experience pottery making and learn about a lacquer art course. It was a chance for the students to apply what they had been learning to real-world practice.
Ms Zhang, a Ceramic Art teacher from Rizhao Polytechnic, together with several students majoring in Ceramics, introduced our students to the professional production process of ceramics and different instruments. YWIS students had a chance to use the skills they had learnt at school in a professional art studio. Also, they improved their teamwork skills as they completed the tasks in groups.
Mr Shen, a teacher from Rizhao Polytechnic, talked about "traditional Chinese lacquer art", the featured course of Rizhao Polytechnic, and showed many exquisite lacquer works. The students learnt the raw materials of lacquer works and different lacquer art genres. They were so amazed by those magnificent works they saw and touched.
The students enjoyed working at the site as they were able to see and be inspired by the art works on display. They were able to speak to the artists and find out what inspired the artists to create their art works.
