Chinese Calligraphy

We had mini workshops with children for the Chinese calligraphy on strips of red papers which also used as Spring couplets 春聯 (chūn lián). This activities were well received.
I am very proud of them also that they learnt the New Year songs so quick and so well!

The word dragon 龍 (lóng) is quite unique and it is quite complex. Personally I think the traditional characters work well and look beautiful for calligraphy. I asked the children to imaging this dragon is crouching over the moon and they can be as creative as they want.
The year 2012 could also be a dragon so here're their arts!
