Origami And Calligraphy

Today we studied two Chinese arts - origami and calligraphy. We saw these "origami" sculptures at Sculptures by the sea at Bondi. This one is made of aluminium rather that paper. We folded our own versions and later floated them in the bath.

Today we have also been reading about the development of writing in ancient China. The children had a go at making the 7 different marks used in Chinese characters and also painted a couple of complete symbols. It was pretty hard. Can you spot field, tree, forest and woman?
