Chinese Culture Courses

Introductory Chinese Calligraphy

This course is taught by a teacher and a calligraphy demonstrator. No prior knowledge or experience of Chinese is necessary. Each class is separate and can be taken by itself, but enrolling for three classes will give you the basics that you need to learn and write on your own (you will also receive a discount). If a student is below age 12, a parent is required to accompany the child. This class is a mixed class with adults, teens and younger students. There is a material fee to include your own brush and magic cloth. Each class is $35 with an additional $20 for a calligraphy kit.  Three classes will cost you only $90 with an additional $20 for a calligraphy kit.  Each class is 1.5 hr. long. If you are only taking one class, you can opt-out on purchasing the calligraphy kit and we will load you the materials while you are in class.

October:  10/12, 10/19, & 10.26 Tues. 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
