International School involves international students on a tour of Xian to appreciate Chinese culture
November 4-8, BFA International School involved its international students on a tour of Xian City of Shaanxi Province to appreciate Chinese culture.
Xian is an ancient capital city of thirteen dynasties in Chinese history as well as the starting point of ancient Eurasian continental silk road. Xian, best known for its long history and rich cultural heritage, draws a continuous stream of foreigners. BFA students visited many famous historic sites and understood the splendid history of ancient China. In particular, in the exhibition hall of No. 1 pit of terracotta warriors, students took photos in front of this world wonder.

After that, students visited Chenlu Ancient Town, reputed as the porcelain town of a thousand years old, where they saw how Chinese porcelain is made. Under the guidance of porcelain makers, students tried out the pleasure of making porcelains.

This tour allowed BFA’s international students to have personal experience with traditional Chinese culture, broaden their horizon and enrich their artistic practice. We believe this event has enabled international students to gain a deeper understanding of China and helped them know more about China.
