Chinese Caligraphy at the Frog Pond

This week, we have guest commentary from
Sidewalk Sam's companion artist
(and Frog Pond craft photographer) Tina Guilleman!

It was a perfect Boston day. (Finally!) Sunny, but breezy.
It felt great. While the Pond was quieter than normal,
we did Chinese Calligraphy Scrolls.

The kids (and a lot of adults!) really concentrated.

We had examples of Chinese characters,

but we also hosted a large amount of "real" Chinese visitors
and they really enjoyed it.

The kids did some very nice art,
decorating (after they wrote the characters in ink)
with stamps, stickers and markers.

When they were done, we gave them a choice of cool ribbons
to wrap around their scrolls.

Everyone had another super day!

Enjoy the pictures!
