Chen Cunlin, an art teacher at Dongqiao Middle School, said: "Want to combine our local characteristics and heritage culture, it can not only reflect the aesthetic taste of the students, but also enhance the students' ability to create and stimulate their creative desires." The school does not stick to the classroom form, regularly organizes students to go to Dongqiao Ancient Brick and Tile Factory for on-the-spot investigation, let students learn more about the firing process of ancient bricks, feel the atmosphere of ancient civilization, and invite old craftsmen to come to school. Give students on-the-spot explanations and guidance. It is reported that the school plans to set up an ancient brick and tile showroom to continuously deepen the teaching content through field study, classroom teaching and display, so as to inherit the brick carving teaching and ancient brick and tile culture.
