Grade 4 – Calligraphy

Ms Hailey, Chinese language teacher and after-school teacher on calligraphy, visited the Grade 4 class to talk to the students about the history of calligraphy in Chinese culture. She showed the different styles of calligraphy and offered students a workshop on how to hold a calligraphy brush. Students wrote  “艺术” which means “art”.

This workshop supports the students understanding of our current unit which falls under the transdisciplinary theme How we express ourselves.

The central idea for this unit is “Throughout history, people have interacted with each other and communicated using arts.”

The lines of inquiry are:

  • development of art forms over time
  • how art works provide insight and information
  • the role of arts in different cultures, place and times

Below are images from the workshop.
