You'll first learn the brief history of Chinese Calligraphy, including the various script styles and notable Chinese Calligraphers across the different dynasty. You'll then be introduced to the four treasures of the study and learn how to hold the brush and grind ink. Lastly, you will practise the basic strokes and common words to create your own art work.
Chinese Calligraphy is an art form using brush and ink to write Chinese Words. In today's fast paced world, learn to slow down and be present with each brush stroke. I have been practising Chinese Calligraphy since I was 6 years old. In the past year, I teach Chinese Calligraphy on a volunteer basis to groups of children. I love how the practice keeps me grounded in the moment, and I love to share this beautiful part of Chinese culture to guests from all over the world. No experience required to try Chinese Calligraphy- you just need an open mind and a heart to learn (:
