LaSalle II Welcomes Master Painter from China


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.

Please take a look at a few of the pictures by clicking  here.
