Course content
The advanced course helps students further develop their calligraphy skills. Calligraphy (shufa) is one of the traditional Chinese/Asian art that is closely related to culture and society. Calligraphy is a method of capturing the beauty and scope determined by performing diferent brush moves. Calligraphers were often poets and painters in one person and their fascination with calligraphy letters intermingled with their other art disciplines. The perfect imitation of artistic designs is highly acclaimed in China - perhaps more than in other areas of the arts. The study of calligraphy involves mastering the techniques and styles of famous calligraphic masters.
