Please watch this space for details of the Beijing Arts Summer School 2013…………..
This is an exciting opportunity to study in Beijing where you will work alongside artists and designers from the UK and China and have the opportunity to experience the vibrant mix of modern artistic culture in China side by side with its traditional art forms and culture.
The culmination of the Summer School will be a final exhibition in Beijing which will provide an international stage for your work.
Confucius Temple was built to honour Confucius, one of China’s greatest philosophers, and educationalist. There is a courtyard of 198 stone tablets/steles carved with the names of approx 51,000 scholars who passed the imperial exam during the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties.
I decided to apply to the Beijing Summer School to give myself a challenge, and it was definitely hard work! Despite the heat and the culture shock, I’m glad I did it because I saw and experienced so much in the three weeks that I was there and met some lovely people, including our three assistants. I felt that we were well looked after but also given the freedom to explore Beijing in our own ways.Josceline Fenton
