Every Saturday at Fort Hays State University, the Chinese Student Association teaches people from the Hays area about Chinese language and culture through afternoon learning sessions as part of the Chinese Academy Project.
The students teach Chinese language, paper folding, ping-pong, painting, brush pen writing, tai chi, Chinese painting and knotting.
Classes are offered every Saturday with an adult session, free of charge, from 1 to 5 p.m. and a children session, $20 per semester, from 1 to 4 p.m. Classes are located in the Trails and Prairie rooms in the Memorial Union.
