The Museum of East Asian Art are currently looking for volunteers to help out at our free Lunar New Year Extravaganza, 25 January 2009.  We will be celebrating the Year of the Ox with lots of Chinese and East Asian arts and crafts activities, Chinese Zodiac face painting, musical performances, martial arts demonstrations and traditional lion dances.  The event will run from 1 - 4pm in the historic Ball Room at the Bath Assembly Rooms, and will be a fun and festive afternoon for people of all ages.

    • You must be able to commit to practice at the Museum at least once a week between now and 25 January (with the exception of the week around Christmas and New Year’s).
  • Perform!
    • Do you play any traditional Chinese or East Asian instruments? Are you able to sing any folk tunes or perform traditional Lunar New Year dances?  We would love to have you on board! 
    • This is a great opportunity to showcase your talents whilst celebrating the Year of the Ox.  
  • Run arts and crafts activities
    • From ink painting to face painting, we need "crafty" individuals to help man our activitiy stations, assit children with cutting, pasting and folding, and keep activities well-stocked and orderly

Chinese Arts Workshop

Chinese Arts Workshop

Workshop with Chinese artist and teacher Ai Li Purdey,
introduces you to the basics of chinese calligraphy and brush painting.

Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world.  Painting in the traditional style is today known in Chinese as guó huà 国画, meaning 'national' or 'native painting', in opposition to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century.
 Traditional painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black or colored ink; oils are not used. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made of paper and silk. The finished work is then mounted on scrolls, which can be hung or rolled up. Traditional painting also is done in albums and on walls, lacquerwork, and other media.


Cost - £20 - please book five days in advance

hi again)
I'm back to ask you some questions. I'm going to apply for postgraduate MA in international politics, the Departement of European Studies and Modern Languages, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Guess you are studying biology but maybe you can help me. How do you understand research in the field of International politics..We don't have the difference between taught courses and research, we make them both during studying. And still I wonder in what form a research in International politics sphere can be made.. It's not biology or geography or anything like this..What do you think?know?

And I'm going to continue studying at the University of Bath(faculty of humanities and social sciences/european studies and modern languages) applying for the University scolarship.  As far as english university system differs from russian, I've some questions.
1.When it's necessary to send all my documents to the University?Do you have the same period for all the uk universities or it differs from university to university?
2. How long does it take from the University to make decision concerning my admission(or not)?What are the main principles of the admission?
3. After I get the University Invitation (Is it the invitation?).. Shall I have enough time to apply for the University grant?

Many thanks for your answers:))
