Chinese & Art Classroom

Chinese & Art Classroom

I enjoy teaching and I found a primary school which had 7 students but 4 grades when I was 15, an art teacher at 17, and an instructor of Chinese language and literature in a college, so that I thought I would certainly be a professor someday. 

However, I was changed into an editor and a senior manager in Chinese financial and Securities industry. Until 2002, the death of my 48-years elder brother shocked and reminded me to re-start to pursue my true love --arts of paiting, music and language. 

So, since I launched my own web site in 2005, Art, Music and Chinese Langauge & Literature (mainly Poetry) have been the main contents of it, which have been expressed by Creating and Teaching. And since then, used for 15 years, base on Chinese painting, music and poetry, I have been studying, explorying and creating something new in Chinese as Second Language field --“Poetry, Painting, Music: Comprehensive and Artistic Chinese, which is a new Chinese langauge learning/ teaching style -- to help non-Chinese speakers to learn Chinese and culture by enjoying and practicing poetry, paintings, music and various arts. Meanwhile, to create a new comprehensvie art form in art fied.
