Pottery Class and Museum Visit

--2018 International Student Activities Series


    March 17, 2018, a group of international students attended the Pottery Class and Museum Visit as an episode of the China Class of the International Students Activities Series organized by the International Office of ACEM.


    The Saturday of discovery began with a lively pottery class, where students freely tried out their talent and creativity. Teachers gave demonstration on basic technics and one-to-one instructions throughout the class. Students used the potter’s wheel and felt the potter’s sensation, enjoying, having fun and being creative at the same time.


    After finishing on the wheel, students added carving with teachers' help to make it more unique. They would be able to hold their own pieces in their hands in the next few days after fire and glaze.


    In the afternoon, students arrived Shanghai museum to continue their discovery on art and beyond.

Shanghai Museum is a large museum of ancient Chinese art. From bronze wares to Chinese calligraphies and paintings, from ancient sculptures and jades to furniture of Ming and Qing Dynasties. Students appreciated the artifacts and at the same time pondered on the ancient Chinese wisdom and philosophy.


    The China Class served as thriving community for international students at ACEM to learn the wide spectrum of Chinese culture, as well as to make new friends. The upcoming activity will be Chinese Knotting Class on March 24, 2018.
