Starting from June 2011 till the summer 2012, there will be monthly public lectures in the East Asian Library about different aspects of Chinese culture, such as Chinese arts, Chinese dance, Chinese medicine, etc.
The first lecture of the series: Chinese Brush Painting (書畫) featured by Dr. Jason Kao and his friend Mr. Peng Ma(馬鵬). Dr. Kao talked about traditional Chinese painting techniques, and Mr. Peng Ma gave a live painting demonstration. The lecture was well received.
