Chinese calligraphy is a visual art and originated and developed from China.
Today we had a very successful calligraphy class.My students were so excited about “painting”. Actually,it is not painting but writing on the rice paper.After enjoying the video, they could wait to have a try and created their art works.First of all, I give them some newspaper to practice the Chinese characters on it, then then could pick a word from google and imitated it on the rice paper which is very soft and best paper for doing calligraphy.The most difficult part is holding the writing brush for my students.Because the writing brush is not a pencil, people should hold it vertically and couldn’t touch the desk with the wrists while they were practicing writing. It is so hard for the beginners to hold the writing brush. My students did a very good job.
