You will learn about the structure and basic strokes of Chinese characters in calligraphy writing, with a focus on the practice of frequently-used Chinese characters so that you get to recognize and identify Chinese characters that have been learned. We will also try some simple use of calligraphic art in everyday life such as for household decoration and artwork. For instance, we will practice writing antithetical couplets and the character fu (meaning ‘blessing’), and making your own
Chinese paper fan.
