The ancient art of Chinese calligraphy is said to be like meditation; quieting the heart and calming the mind by moving its qi or energy in rhythm with the movement of the brush.

Learn to control a soft brush on rice paper and use it to form bold yet delicate strokes that create harmonious and elegant Chinese characters. At the end of the course, you will have meaningful works of your own to take home and the technique and appreciation to make calligraphy an everyday skill that is a pleasure to perform, and a delight to view.

This course is suitable for students of all levels. Experienced students will write a famous Chinese poem. Through this, you will refine your technique of the basic strokes and develop your aesthetic understanding of structure and balance.
