Chinese Calligraphy Introductory Workshop

书法入门工作坊

Have you always wanted to learn Chinese art, but haven’t because you don’t speak Chinese? Have you been drawn to beautiful calligraphy, but haven’t known how to interpret it? Do you have an impulse to draw your own lines with ancient writing tools, but don’t know how to start?

你是否想了解最古老的中国艺术却因为不懂中文而生怯?你是否曾经被一幅优美的书法作品吸引却无奈不懂如何解读?你是否有冲动想要在纸上勾画属于你自己的线条却不知如何下手?

InkMoon Intro Workshop is specifically designed for you! Come explore traditional Chinese culture without having any previous background. You will be surprised at how accessible and enjoyable this ancient art is.

墨月入门工作坊特别为想了解中国传统文化的零基础朋友而设计,以最轻松愉快的方式带你领略这门古老神秘的艺术。

During a two-hour Chinese calligraphy workshop in English, you will discover a new world: You will hear a brief overview of the history of Chinese calligraphy, listen to interesting stories behind great works of art, explore writing tools which have been used for a thousand years and create your own artwork in the same way as the ancients.

在2小时的书法课程里,你将会进入一个全新的世界——从这门古老艺术的历史到伟大作品背后的故事,从沿用千年的书写工具到像古人一样写出属于自己的书法作品。

Using a brush and ink, you will explore a black and white world that is more than just an art, but the very spirit of life that Chinese people have lived by for thousands of years.

一支笔,一方砚,黑白方寸之间,你所看到的书法不仅是一门艺术,更是中国人传承千年的生命之道。

"This is a good class. The teacher takes great care explaining and demonstrating in detail how brushwork is handled, and you are given ample time to practice as much as you like."

--Kirk from USA

"Lucy did a wonderful job explaining the history of calligraphy in a compelling way that gave me a new appreciation for learning Chinese characters. When it came to the practical exercises, she was extremely patient and helpful in showing us how to trace our first characters. This introductory course was a great experience and window to Chinese culture!"

--Natalie from Canada
