This course integrates the practice of calligraphy into the knowledge of calligraphy related to Chinese characters. Students are not only learning how to write the character, but also understanding the evolution of Chinese characters, different styles of calligraphy, the aesthetics of Chinese characters and its relationship to the Chinese language, and the “four treasures of the study” in the context of the Chinese culture. In terms of hands-on practice, students will start practicing with pens/pencils and paper in the correct stroke order, and end up with using brush pen and calligraphy workbook if so wished. Techniques will also be taught.
