It is said that the history of a civilization is preserved in the art work that is produced. Certainly this is true of the art work produced in East Asia. Through study of that art and then the creation of art work done in the manner of Asian Arts it is hoped that we will have a better understanding and appreciation of the people and their culture.

The primary purpose of these lessons is to provide art instruction based in the traditions of the three major countries of influence in East Asia, namely China, Japan, and Korea. Although these lessons originated at the middle school level they can be executed through the twelfth grade.
