Update from Quanzhou

The team in china sent through this great picture of the traditional chinese junk launch for CIMoCA. The launch went great and when the team gets back we will have a full overview of the entire china trip.

The Art and Islands Foundation Team at Quanzhou Academy of Painting with the Dean of the school and other professors

Today the team also visited the Quanzhou Academy of Painting where Eric was privileged enough to be taught some calligraphy by a master scribe. Although not feeling he was very good he says he had an amazing time at the school. We hope that CIMoCA will be able to encourage strong cultural links between the Channel Islands and schools like this in China. (see the CIMoCA page for more information)
