In October, the Wake Forest University Museum of Anthropology will offer a hands-on adult education course on traditional Chinese folk art. Local artist Mona Wu will teach participants calligraphy and the art of making block prints, paper fans and paper cuts. Wu also will explain the symbols that are essential to Chinese folk traditions. Participants can create their own folk pieces.
The class will meet on Oct. 9, 16, 23 and 30 from 7-9 p.m. in the museum classroom.
The fee, which includes supplies, is $65 for community members and $55 for members of the Museum Friends organization.
The Chinese folk art class is being held in conjunction with the exhibit, “The Good Earth: Folk Art and Artifacts From the Chinese Countryside” (toured by Exhibits USA- Mid-America Arts Alliance), which will run at the Museum of Anthropology from Oct. 8 to Nov. 26.
