Learning the Art of Chinese Calligraphy
****Monday, April 2****The event has been moved to Monday, April 23.
10:00 am – 1:30 pm

Chinese culture is steeped in the history of writing, and for two thousand years the tools used to write calligraphy have not changed. Calligraphy is not only an art, but also a holistic exercise which involves the mind, body, and spirit. This one day workshop will introduce students to the elements of the art of calligraphy, including the proper handling of the brushes, the basic strokes of Chinese calligraphy, and the fundamental structure of the Chinese character. This is an art-related calligraphy course for the beginning level, which does not require experience with the Chinese language.
