Chinese Calligraphy is a form of calligraphy widely practiced in China. There are various styles of calligraphy. The calligraphy of Chinese characters is an important and appreciated aspect of Chinese culture.

We learned about the basic strokes of the Chinese characters and how to handle the inked brushes. Also, special types of paper are used in Chinese Calligraphy.

Everyone had fun learning from each other. All it was is to get used to holding the brush and knowing how much ink is applied, using light strokes and heavy strokes. Just keep on practicing!
