What a wonderful addition to our family of artists. Angie Matte explained the historical significance of China Painting in American history to the Borderless Arts Teapot Diplomats. The participants then began working on a plate using China Painting. The plate is to depict the Boston Tea Party.
This is part of our Boston Tea Party project to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party.
Next week, the participants will complete their plates, create a mug and have a tea party!
