Japanese Calligraphy

Japanese Calligraphy

 The Consulate General of Japan hosted a calligraphy session at Darwin High School at the end of last term. Fifteen students from the Japanese language classes participated in the activity. They learnt how three different Japanese character sets are used in cities of Japan, mastered several Kanji characters and developed the instruments for calligraphy. 

In the practical session, first they learnt brush holding techniques, correct posture, stroke orders and most importantly, how to calm the mind. They then practised learnt Kanji on newspaper and finally created their own on ‘hanshi’, special rice paper for calligraphy. Their finished products were masterpieces. The teacher was amazed at how they had developed calligraphy skills so well in such a short time.
