As an ancient Chinese art, calligraphy is the core and symbol of Chinese culture.

The course will use Yan Zhenqing's (颜真卿) work (《勤礼碑》) as reference. In the process of learning, students will focus on the basics of strokes, the appreciation of Chinese character fonts, and the self-regulation of Chinese character structure, as well as the cultivation of concentration and patience in writing.
