Shodo (書道 )-Japanese Calligraphy I (Beginning) 

Instructor: Aya Koga (1st half) / Megumi Shuka Furugushi (2nd half)  (Both of Japaense Calligraphy license received in Japan)

Shodo is Japanese traditional art of calligraphy using a brush (fude) and charcoal ink (sumi) on paper, wood plaques, and fabric.  It includes Japanese Kanji and hiragana. Shodo originated in the techniques used for letter writing with its unique form of expression and developed into an art genre. This hands-on class will introduce the techniques of shodo. 

The Shodo class is offered to two different levels of students.
Shodo I is designed for students who have no experience or who have just started leaning calligraphy.  
The goal for Shodo I is to understand and master the basic rules and strokes of Japanese Calligraphy.  
Once you have completed the Shodo I class, you are eligible to enroll in the Shodo II class. 
(Note) The materials for the course (brush, ink, paper, a felt pad, and a paperweight) provided in class are for classroom use only. We have some stocks of Fude (brush) felt pad, ink and papers. You can purchase them in the class.  
We will receive a discount rate from Asahi Imports, our corporate member. We have to order in bulk through JASGA.  Please let us know if you are interested.
