Instructor: Ms. Sally Abita has been teaching calligraphy, shodo, to public school students for the past 8 years. She has a great awareness how to teach Japanese calligraphy to non-Japanese students. For the first day of the class, students will learn basic shodo techniques, such as how to hold and use the brush, how to position the paper, how to ink the brush, and how to make basic brush strokes. Students will complete and submit their own favorite Japanese character in shodo on the last day of the class. Students will also learn the meaning of some Japanese characters. Using her teaching experience at public school, she will teach shodo from the beginner to intermediate levels, as well as teaching people who want to learn “the way of writing” as an art.
