Chinese Calligraphy Demonstration by Xiwen Sheng

March 9, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Chinese calligraphy is an art form that comes from the writing of Chinese characters with special tools: calligraphy brush, ink and rice paper. It shows not only the artist’s skill, but also their inner and outer life. Chinese calligraphy is considered a reflection of the soul. Xiwen Sheng, visiting scholar and Chinese Associate Director of the U-M Confucius Institute, will show examples of some of his work and demonstrate painting participants’ names. There will also be the opportunity to try some simple calligraphic techniques. No experience or Chinese language skill required. If planning to bring a group, please call Gifts of Art at 734-936-ARTS (2787), as space is limited.
