The Eastern Art course at THIS aims to spread traditional Chinese culture and to strengthen students’ understanding and identification. The course also introduces the diverse arts of various Asian countries. Students are introduced to five major areas of study: art history, calligraphy art, painting art, crafts, and interdisciplinary integration courses.
The Eastern Art course takes the solar term as the main context, and students’ exploration themes and learning materials are launched with the change of the solar term. Weather, hydrology, seasons, festivals and customs are all creative materials for students. Students observe their social life and understand the profound historical traditions, so as to understand Chinese culture and create works of art.
