This event is supported by the Mayor's Office for Cultural Affairs. This is the third consecutive year that the Chinese Culture Festival will be hosted at the Newton City Hall.
Chinese culture is one of the world's most enduring as well as most robust cultures. In order to present this glorious Chinese culture to our friends and neighbors, each year's Newton Chinese Culture festival features different themes. For the past two years, we showcased Chinese traditional instruments and costumes. The theme for this year will be Chinese painting, which is one of the most glorious artistic traditions in the world.
At the festival, we will introduce you to the history and the different styles of Chinese paintings. You will have a rare opportunity to watch our artist painting at close distance, and you will learn some basic painting techniques from our Chinese painting masters.
In addition to the Chinese painting, you and your family can also enjoy seeing traditional Chinese folk dance, listening to Chinese folk songs, and tasting traditional Chinese food. For children, there will be many other activities like art crafting, face painting and games.
We hope this will be wonderful celebration of the Chinese culture with the whole Newton community. Please bring your family and friends along to participate in this cultural festival!
