Students are encouraged to participate in school parties, exhibitions, and other activities.

Course Description

Most of our foreign students have little or no experience with Japanese calligraphy, so this course has been designed with that in mind. For those who have studied in the past, adjustments can be made to suit their abilities.

Months 1-3

Students will focus on the fundamentals:

Brush technique, stroke order, character balance, Hiragana, Katakana, basic Kanji block form, and seal carving.   

Months 4-6

Progresses to more difficult characters and students begin to learn about Japanese writing history.

Small brush use and advanced seal carving will also be introduced during this time.

Months 7-9

Continue with small and standard size brush practice.

Students also begin large brush practice and start creating their own art works.

Months 10-12

Includes writing practice, seal carving, extra-large brush practice, modern art calligraphy, and introductions to various writing styles.

* Small tests will be given every 3 months.
* Upon completion of the course, students are awarded with Certificate of Completion.
