The Art and Aesthetics pupils at Harrow Beijing City Campus have created a beautiful collection of goose paintings. Art and Aesthetics is an LSA (Leadership and Service Activity) course, in which pupils are immersed in over 20 cultural themes, such as Chinese painting, architecture, sculpture, and poetry. Learning Chinese aesthetics and traditional art techniques from an early age, pupils are able to express their understanding of the world in their own works.
The goose symbolizes purity, rectitude, and idyllic natural beauty in traditional Chinese culture. This collection showcases the students’ interpretation of the meaning of the goose.
