LaSalle II Welcomes Master Painter from China

IMG_4315

Thanks to the the Chicago Chinese Cultural Institute  and the Confucius Institute at Walter Payton High School, LaSalle II was once again fortunate to host a master painter from China, Weibing Chen.  Master Chen specializes in pastoral landscape paintings.  He  demonstrated techniques using a calligraphy brush and water ink.  He also taught students how to use the brushes to paint blossoming trees.  We are honored to have had the opportunity to host and welcome Master Chen.

Students paintings from this day will be displayed in the second floor hallway by the language classrooms.

Thank you to the PTO for funding the even, Jill Daly & Teria Stamatis for co-chairing, Jeanne McClure & Mark Ruggiero for the music, Jen Christianson for crafts, Tess Kearns for the photo booth, and all the parents who helped with face painting, food and decorating. We also appreciate the help from the high school students from Build On that volunteered from set up to tear down!
