ACCOMPLISHMENT
Through a multi-disciplinary approach, the course will enhance students’ knowledge on the development (history) and spiritual discipline behind the tea ceremony (philosophy), as well as aesthetic contemplation of tea gardens, tea rooms (architecture), tea utensils, calligraphy, kimono and flower arrangement (arts) as a whole. Apart from traditional classroom teaching, we will invite Japanese tea masters to perform the Japanese way of tea at the tea room, and all students taking the course will be given chances to experience and practice the tea ceremony. In addition, other learning activities such as appreciation of different types of arts related to tea ceremony, film appreciation, article reading, group discussions, project and presentation are also included. This course is co-taught by CTL instructors.
