Class Experience

Learners will learn about the spice trade which gave birth to Chinoiserie design style in Europe. They will be able to identify a ginger jar and know its usage. They will learn four stylized auspicious Chinese characters and be able use at least one on their arts and crafts project.
I am a professional designer and have been in the design industry for the past 20 years ranging from graphics, packaging, fashion to home fashion. I am also a native Mandarin Chinese speaker and an avid traveler. I enjoy sharing my expertise in design and combining different areas in history, art and language into my lessons. 
Homework would be to complete the hands-on project from class. 
1. Blue Sharpie Pen 2. White Paper or White Rock or White Christmas tree ornament ball
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
References of auspicious Chinese characters: 

福(Fu 2nd Tone)Good Fortune
祿(Lu 4th Tone)Wealth
壽(Shou 4th Tone)Longevity
囍 (Xi 3rd Tone)Double happiness
