More about this course

Hello! My name is Becky.

As lessons for Chinese calligraphy beginners, that lessons focus on the basic strokes, while this lesson will focus more on the most important structure in Chinese characters--symmetry.

Symmetry exists everywhere in China, and it’s one of the most important aesthetics and philosophy in Chinese culture. In this course, we’ll learn 33 characters in Master Wú Ràngzhī Xiǎozhuàn calligraphy, including the history, writing tips and calligraphy demo of those characters. Aside from that, in the first section, I’ll give you a brief introduction of the Chinese writing system. Because I think you can learn Chinese calligraphy well only when you can deep understand our writing system.

You’re welcome to join our Chinese calligraphy practicing journey!
