Students got the chance to experiment with their artistic talents and embrace a new culture.
Pupils from Redden Court School, in Cotswold Road, Harold Wood, took part in a specially arranged Chinese cultural workshop and produced drawings inspired by Chinese art.
Among the guests were Li Jia, a renowned expert in Chinese calligraphy and Ping Wong, a writer and teacher of Mandarin.
Music was also part of the experience and Year 9 pupil Ting Ting gave a recital on the Guzheng - a 21 string musical instrument.
The workshop came ahead of a new initiative by the school to teach Mandarin starting in September.
