Calligraphy

As the art of writing Chinese characters, Chinese calligraphy, or shufa, is one of the highest forms of Chinese art, serving the purpose of conveying thoughts while also showcasing abstract beauty of lines. Calligraphy is one of the four basic skills and disciplines of the Chinese literati, together with painting (hua), stringed musical instruments (qin) and board games (qi).

Chinese calligraphy is an Oriental art. Like the use of chopsticks, calligraphy was once entirely Chinese, but as Chinese culture spread to Korea, Japan, and Singapore, calligraphy became a unique feature of Oriental art. Nowadays, as China is more open to the world and has more communication, more and more foreign friends are becoming interested in Chinese calligraphy.

Last Friday, we invited a professional calligraphy master to teach our Edu aupairs in China! Most of them had the first calligraphy lessons in the lives.

Today also happened to be our dear Edu aupair, Lauren’s birthday! We wish her a very Happy Birthday!

We had great fun today!
