OAS Teachers

OAS considers teachers very important partners in our efforts to share the joy of Chinese painting and culture. Chinese painting and calligraphy is an incredibly personally satisfying activity and the benefit is multiplied when people learn and paint in a group. Teachers are important facilitators of learning and community and we are here to support them.

Tips for Teachers

Plan ahead

Many of the issues that we see teachers struggle with can be solved by proper planning. Contact us well in advance to the beginning of your class. Even better, contact us before the budget and price has been established for your class, and we may be able to help you envision the supplies your students will need and put together a "kit" of supplies that is best suited for the type of class your are wanting to teach.
