Chinese Calligraphy & Painting Club


The Chinese Calligraphy and Painting Club aspires to deepen members' experiences and skills through contributions to and involvement in school events as well as participation in external competitions.

At the beginning of the year, a pair of beautifully written Chinese calligraphy banners that adorned the parade square to mark the start of our school’s centennial celebrations were written by our Vice-Chairperson, Lin Jiaxin.  Another pair of couplet-banners were created for the celebration of Chinese New Year.  We also helped to make the props for our school's Nan Hua Yuan performance and painted the "Centennial Tree" to hold ceramic leaves of well wishes from the Class of 2017.


Creation of Centennial Tree

As part of Racial Harmony Day celebrations, our members set up booths to share about Chinese cultural practices with other schoolmates and at the end of 2016, we also contributed to the annual ArtsFest and Cultural Potpourri by participating in cosplay and creating enormous origami to decorate and transform certain school locations into performance venues.

A key event this year is our Visual Arts Camp 2017.  The club worked together with the Art and Design Club to create unique art pieces by combining elements of western and eastern cultures.  We also built stronger friendships with members of the Art and Design Club.  The camp was indeed fun, enriching and unforgettable.

In calligraphy, each distinct stroke bonds with other strokes to form beautiful art.  Similarly, members of the Calligraphy and Painting Club, individuals who have a burning passion for calligraphy, will work together to make the school proud while continuing to pass on what we know of the Chinese culture.
