Year 9 Japanese students try their hand at traditional black ink painting

27 March 2020

Last week, our Year 9 Japanese students each created a traditional black ink art painting of bamboo trees. Initially this was a difficult task, but students soon improved their technique which involved drawing with ink onto the page and then smudging with their fingers. The artwork will now become the student's notebook cover for the duration of 2020 study. This was a peaceful and calm activity for the students to enjoy and very different from what they are used to doing in Japanese class.
