‘Writing’ Pictures Exploring Ancient Chinese Characters - Kids Course

Venue: 10/F, Hong Kong Arts Centre 
Date: 2024.07.18 - 2024.08.02
Time: 12:00nn-1:30pm  (every Thursday and Friday)  
Price: HK$1,880 

Chinese characters are so intriguing because they almost look like pictures, so ‘writing’ them is an art form in itself. By exploring characters through the history and artistry of Chinese caliigraphy, kids will appreciate this tradition and take pleasure in trying to master it themselves.  

Especially designed for children ages 5-12, this course will cover essential tools and techniques and foster skills from basic strokes to complex character structures in an engaging, thematic way. 

 

Using brush, ink and rice paper, students will: 

- Understand the rich history and evolution of Chinese calligraphy, appreciating its cultural significance and aesthetic beauty 

- Grasp the correct techniques of using the tools  

- Develop and progress their calligraphic skills through practice  

- Learn thematically with the categorisation of characters as outlined in "Shuowen Jiezi” -- animal and nature-themed, indicative, ideographic, pictophonetic 

- Recognise different calligraphic scripts: Regular, Running, Cursive, Clerical, and Seal
