Private Day Tour of Peasant Painting in Xi'an

1 day
About this activity
In the morning, your English-speaking guide will meet you at your hotel lobby and then transfer you to visit the Donghan Village in Huanxian County, Xi’an City. It may take about an hour on the way. Upon arrival, you get to enjoy many exquisite Peasant Paintings. Then you will learn to do a Peasant Painting and paper-cutting. Later, take a cooking class to learn how to make dumplings and noodles. Lunch will be arranged at a local family so that you can experience more of the local life. At the end of the tour, your guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel in Xi'an.

Originated from the traditional folk arts such as paper cutting, embroidery and so on, Peasant Painting in Huxian County first appeared during the 1950s. At that time, most paintings were focused on work. Now, peasants portray almost every aspect in their daily life. Feeding livestock, children playing, local operas, village traditions, ducks swimming, elders playing Chinese chess and so on are all wonderful topics for paintings. By using bright colors and fantastic style, peasants record their everyday lives, the beautiful landscape, the great harvests and the busy festivals vividly. Some paintings are bold and unconstrained; some are strong and impassioned, while others are ornate and elegant. All of them have a naive charm, clear and full of the feeling of folk life.
