"All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy..." There is a saying like that if I am not wrong. A student's work is primarily to study but I doubt if a student works all day in a week. Impression is subjective. What impresses you may not necessarily impress me and vice versa.

So you mean any expression or display o a student's creative activities is a waste of time? What do you understand by art then?

These kind of activities, rightfully named extra-curricular activities, are meant to take some of the stress of studying on students and are a common practice in any civilized country, including your loved Australia

Please note what the OP writes, they're students and their works are not meant to be 'professional' but fun.

You should really stop seeing anything said or done by Chinese people in a negative way.

I find it difficult to believe that a student will study all day in a week. That is obviously not healthy. There is time to work (study) but there is also time to have fun, sleep, eat etc.

he fails to see the benefits of such activities. It is unfortunate.

I fail to see how dressing in costume and reenacting a pose from a painting would "improve a student's aesthetic ability and help them enjoy appreciating classical art works".  Since this was a primary school, I seriously doubt the students were provided any background on the specific painters, their subjects, or relevant artwork from that era in art history for comparison.  Certainly it may have been a fun and distracting exercise from their otherwise mundane lessons.  If the goal indeed is to improve the student's aesthetic ability and appreciation of art, then it should have been an exercise in critiquing the master's works.
