  • Painting Like a Pro

    Line, shape, color and space are some of the elements in art.  Art elements are like building blocks for creativity.  In this session, students will put art elements to the test by creating paintings inspired by some of art history’s most famous artists like Piet Mondrian, Georges Seurat and more. We will also practice using different tools, processes and techniques to create our paintings and build a mini portfolio of work.

  • Athletics in Mandarin

    If you want to exercise your body and mind, this could be the class for you! We will start each day with breathing and movement exercises, such as Qi Gong or Tai Chi. We will then play a sport (tennis, soccer, baseball and others) while using a mixture of English and Mandarin. This is an opportunity to keep up your current Mandarin skills while learning new ones in a fun way. We will also participate in indoor activities, like Gimkit and calligraphy (Chinese Brush Writing).
