U-M School of Art & Design faculty member Anne Mondro, guest blogger:

Our last lesson was to fly our kites. The Beijing wind gently scooped up his stunning creation into her arms. Master Ha launched the butterfly kite higher and higher. The butterfly wings full of color danced in the sky as I chased after her with the zeal of a child. Next to fly were our own kites. Anxious to see them in the sky, Master Ha quickly tied them up and released them to her. Higher and higher our bamboo and paper structures rose. Tiny bamboo swallows sailing in the wind. Praise from Master Ha echoes in our ears as our eyes are glued to the tiny kites of our labor.
