Online Japanese Calligraphy Experience

A world in every brushstroke

Japanese calligraphy combines communication, artistry, and philosophy in the delicate dance of the brush.
As well as an art form, shodo is considered a Zen activity. The artist must clear their mind and focus their spirit on the work in order to be successful. Accordingly, Japanese calligraphy values spontaneous, flowing brushstrokes as a pure representation of the writer’s spirit.
Your teacher is a Master of Calligrapher based in Tokyo. The granddaughter of another Master Calligrapher, she studied at Irvine Valley College, SUNY Plattsburgh and the Japan Calligraphy Academy (Nippon Kyoiku Shodo Geijutsuin) before opening her own school. With her, you’ll learn about the history and philosophy of shodo and receive guidance in writing Kanji characters of your own.
