Approaching the holiday, all pupils from International Integration Department at Xinhua Academy used a special way to welcome this year's Mid-Autumn · National Day double festival.
On September 28, students picked up brushes and color pens to write poems and draw pictures on paper fans. Under the guidance of their Chinese teachers and their art teacher, they carefully copied Mid-Autumn Festival related poems, which they learned and researched before, on their fans. After that, they started to add drawings and scenes connected to the content of their chosen poem.
On the paper fan, the moon is as big as a transparent plate, shining bright like a yellow crystal. Yu rabbit is hiding in the tree or sitting on the branches, enjoying the moon light and having fun. The moon goddess Chang’e looks pretty with an immortal spirit. In the distance, there are auspicious clouds rolling and lucky stars shining. The sky even begins to rain moon cakes. The art teacher gently adds brush strokes. Ink branches and red laurel fragrance float on the paper.
There are also different verses from different poems written on the fan. These verses express thoughts about love, philosophy and sarcasm, but also show deeper thinking skills.
