Daviess County Public Library Offering Free Chinese Calligraphy Kits & Classes
Are you the type of person that is always looking for something new to learn? How about Chinese Calligraphy? The Daviess County Public Library is offering classes and free supplies.
WHAT IS CHINESE CALLIGRAPHY?
The word "calligraphy" means beautiful writing. Angel here and I have always envied people who could take a pen and make magic. Writing their words in an artistic form makes you want to keep reading because the letters were so beautiful.
According to asiasociety.org;
In China, from a very early period, calligraphy was considered not just a form of decorative art; rather, it was viewed as the supreme visual art form, was more valued than painting and sculpture, and ranked alongside poetry as a means of self-expression and cultivation. How one wrote, in fact, was as important as what one wrote.
HOW TO SIGN UP FOR CLASSES AND WHAT TO EXPECT
The classes are actually not at the library. Anyone that wants to take the class will pick up their kits at the library and take them to learn from the comforts of their home.
Here's what DCPL has the say about the class;
