This class offers an introduction to the basic aesthetic principles and techniques of Chinese calligraphy. We begin with a brief overview of historical and aesthetic context of calligraphy, an introduction to materials, and demonstration of handling brush and ink. Students will learn fundamental components, stroke order, and how these elements work together to form Chinese characters. Subsequent sessions will work on building up students’ skills and mastery of the forms and structures to create characters that exhibit good balance and energy, culminating in the writing of individual characters, student names, and poetry. Beginners welcome and no knowledge of Chinese necessary!
