The art of Chinese calligraphy and painting has formed a unique national art in the long time historical development in China. On August 2nd, Echo held a workshop at Comi art studio for our foreign teachers - appreciation of Chinese calligraphy and painting.
At the beginning, Ms Wang, a professional art teacher from Comi, explained the origin, characteristics, basic skills and elements of Chinese calligraphy, such as typefaces of Chinese calligraphy, writing posture, writing method and how to hold a brush. Then she introduced Echo teachers the use of lines and strokes of calligraphy and then taught them how to write basic strokes.
After that, Ms Wang gave a demonstration. She wrote down some Chinese characters for the Echo teachers to imitate.
Finally, everyone created their own work and signed their names.
Finally, each person created their own unique painting. All of the teachers did a really great job!
