Middle School Chinese Teacher Amy Wang's Guest Artist Day in the Lower School

On Monday, February 12, Lower School art teacher Marilyn Mullinax invited a special guest to her class – our very own Amy Wang who teaches Chinese in the Middle School. In celebration of the Chinese Lunar New Year, Ms. Wang spent the day with students, teaching them to use Chinese bamboo brushes, natural mineral ink, and rice paper to write Chinese characters.


“I have been participating in the guest artist program since 2018 , which is an annual project centered around Chinese culture and traditional Chinese handicrafts,” she says. In addition to Chinese brush calligraphy, she hopes to give students a greater understanding of the Chinese Lunar New Year, Chinese folk customs, and more. 

“As a first-generation Chinese immigrant and a Chinese language teacher, I feel a natural sense of responsibility to promote Chinese culture,” says Ms. Wang. “Through this project, I hope to provide our Lower School students with an opportunity to learn about Chinese culture. And maybe it will inspire more students to choose to study Chinese as their second foreign language when they come to the Middle School one day.”
