Session 15 Chinese Calligraphy for Beginners

I am happy to report that every one of my students turned up on the due date with their artwork.  I must admit to being nervous that someone may, for one reason or another fail to show.

After all the oohs and aaas, each student was given a frame to mount their work.  These are the cheapest frames that MOSAIC could find, more suitable for business registrations than calligraphy but we were grateful to have a wall to hang our work for a month.  Between now and the exhibition opening I must type up each of their ‘blurbs’ on cards that will accompany their work.

Two chose to write the Tang Dynasty poem that was our term project:

Four decided to write one line each:

One chose three  characters and two took two each:

…and one student bravely wrote one large character:


I congratulate all the students, particularly the three who joined the class in week 9.  Well done, all.   We will celebrate next week, our last session.

    I know the teacher was demanding, I hope they realize how well they have done when someone set the bar high, because to me it looks like they all made it over. Looking forward to you blogging on Portugal.
