Asian Art Spotlight: Branch of the Cold Season

Connect a Chinese painting from the Ming Dynasty to the nature you see outside today! This video focused on “Branch of the Cold Season” by Yang Hui. Spend time looking at the artwork and then respond to looking questions to get you ready to consider and discuss poetry, calligraphy, and movement. SAM has also designed a Look & Make Lesson to be used in tandem with this video designed for k_5 students. It is available in English, Spanish, and Chinese:

While the Asian Art Museum is closed, we are working to connect art lovers of all ages to this rich collection of art. In this series of videos we explore art from across the world’s largest continent that focus on diverse art objects and provide opportunity for creative response. Each video can be used in virtual classrooms, at home by parents and caregivers, and by friends hanging out online! These videos are aligned with Washington State learning standards in Visual Art and English Language Arts.
