Media Advisory: Chinese Students Visit NMU for Language, Art

Thursday 6, 2017

Media coverage is welcome when 19 students from Aba Teachers University in China spend about two weeks at NMU for an English Language Institute focused on art. Faculty from NMU’s School of Art & Design will teach segments in ceramics, human-centered design, graphic design and painting. NMU’s English Language Institute will coordinate the cultural and language segments, which will also be held in the Art & Design Building.

The summer program is an extension of a re-established relationship between the assistant director of the School of Art & Design at Aba Teachers University and Daric Christian, associate dean of the NMU School of Art & Design.

A schedule of the art workshops follows. Language and culture sessions are from 9-11 a.m. on the same days. For more information, contact Christian at or 250-6549 or Diana Vreeland of the English Language Institute at or 989-560- 4009.
