Addressed to the most artistic and skilful students we offer calligraphy classes. Chinese writing constitutes an art in itself which has been cultured for centuries and which is transmitted from one generation to another. Characters, formed by trace, with a stroke and ink, may be very strict according to five historical styles: seal script(篆書 zhuànshū), clerical script (隸書 lìshū), regular script (楷書 kǎishū), semi-cursive script (行書 xíngshū) and the grass style or cursive script (草書 cǎoshū). Thre visual result is a drawing full of details

Learning is an art and, hence, throughout the academic year we will offer workshops taught by writing professionals both for students and curious people so that they can exercise this millenary tradition.
