Chinese Language Program
In order to serve the diverse community in the Pasadena District, the Chinese Program at Pasadena City College offers classes that range from Chinese language courses and Chinese cultural courses to courses in Chinese literature. The Program helps students develop communicative skills in the Chinese language and a cosmopolitan knowledge of Chinese culture and literature. Students may also follow a course of study leading to a Chinese major.
Traditional Art - Batik
Batik is a traditional Chinese folk art that combines painting and dyeing. It is made by dipping a specially designed knife into melted wax and using it to paint various patterns on pieces of white cloth..The wax stays on the cloth and often cracks after it hardens. The cloth is then dyed and the dyes seep into the cracks and make fine lines.
