Chinese ink wells February 18, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — alaplante @ 2:25 pm

The 4th graders started their Chinese brush painting unit yesterday.  Before they can even begin to use the special bamboo brushes, they needed to make ink wells and brush stands for themselves.  With clay, each student made a 3-part ink well (for various shades of india ink), as well as a brush stand to hold 2 brushes.  After vacation, they will glaze the items, and begin to learn the careful brush techniques!
