The participant in a Japanese classroom experienced Japanese calligraphy (習字) on May 20.
The lecturer of Japanese class prepared the kit for calligraphy (brush, black writing fluid, inkstone, the special paper, the underlay, the paperweight) and the copy.
At first, they wrote “一(ONE in Chinese character)” for practicing touches. After that, they chose respectively favorite characters from the copy, then imitated the copy.
The balance of a character has been ready while writing repeatedly. There were some persons who imitate and write the character written on the newspaper besides the copy. It seems that not everybody is necessarily experienced in the treatment of a brush although we had expected the person from China writes a character like 王羲之.
At the last of the class, we gathered together and took a photograph with the respective favorite works.
