MOSAIC, the organisation that hosts my Chinese calligraphy course, has invited submissions from all their creative art and craft classes to exhibit students’ work at a exhibition to be mounted in September.
The last time one of my classes exhibited their work was in 2013. It was a good hang though the works were all reproductions that were reduced (from A3 to A4) to fit the exhibition space.
This time I have requested and was promised adequate space for students to display their original work in A3 frames. I proposed the project to my students last week and they have all committed to producing one piece of calligraphy each for the exhibition.
My students have been working on a 28-word poem. So far only two out of ten of them have achieved anything near presentable and those were outside of the A3 restrictions, so all students will have to design new projects for this exhibition. Due by 6 September.
All works must fit into an A3 frame, written in standard script in the Ou style with the theme of “Spring”.
