In Honor of AAPI Month, we will be diving into Chinese Calligraphy.
Has your name influenced your identity and how you view yourself? First, we start with an icebreaker where everyone shares the meaning of their name and what their parents told them about who and why they chose that name.
We will get an overview of Chinese Calligraphy, its history, and its ties to Chinese culture.
Then we will use the Piccles digital drawing tool where everyone will draw 3-5 things that they love and represent them now. It’s always fun to guess who drew what and it's a time for getting to know each other better.
Lastly, everyone will combine those 3-5 elements and invent a Chinese character that represents them. It’s not about making it look Chinese, creativity is about original thought and using everyone’s unique expression to build an authentic connection.
