In these hands-on workshops, children ages 7-12 will experience the calligraphic art of shodō using a brush and ink on paper. Students will learn stroke order and the technique of writing Japanese characters. No calligraphy or Japanese language experience required. Max. 12 students.

Shodō is an art form using a brush and charcoal ink on paper, wood plaques, and fabric.  It includes Chinese characters (kanji) and Japanese hiragana.  Although it originated in the techniques used for letter writing, with its unique form of expression it has developed into an art genre. This hands-on workshop will introduce the techniques of shodō.

Materials for the course (brush, ink, paper, a felt pad, and a paperweight) are provided in class for classroom use only.
