In a recent initiative, the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation orchestrated a drama education class at the China National Theater for Children, drawing nearly 100 participants, including educators and students from primary schools in Beijing alongside foreign children residing in China.

The primary objective of this program is to immerse participants in the allure of drama, fostering cultural appreciation and creativity through interactive and stimulating activities that spark imagination and insight.

Guided by Feng Li, the theater's director, attendees delved into an exhibition chronicling the rich history of the China National Theater for Children, tracing the evolution of Chinese children's drama across the 75 years since the founding of the People's Republic of China.

Mao Ernan, a seasoned drama director, shared invaluable insights into the world of drama, imparting fundamental theater knowledge encompassing set design, costumes, and makeup. By showcasing clips from the beloved children's play Journey to the West, Mao provided a hands-on experience for the young participants, allowing them to explore stage effects and character makeup while actively participating in engaging interactive sessions.

This drama education class forms part of the esteemed "Future Classroom" series of activities launched by the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation. This innovative program is designed to nurture both the moral and intellectual development of children. Since its inception in 2018, the initiative has invited distinguished figures from diverse domains to educate and engage with children on various subjects, including virtues, intelligence, physical fitness, arts, and practical skills. With its interactive and enlightening approach, the Future Classroom initiative has garnered popularity as a dynamic and effective extracurricular educational platform.
