The Philadelphia Chinese Language Meetup Group Message Board › Have you ever had an interest in Chinese Brush Painting and Calligraphy?
Shawn McGill (Philadelphia Chinese Meetup Organizer) has received information about a great Chinese Brush Painting and Calligraphy program. See below. He took the fall session and he said "it was a lot of fun! The instructor, Josephine, really caters to her students. I say this because she created her lesson plans around our specific interests!"
One of the weekend Chinese attendees said that, "I practiced that [Chinese Brush Painting and Calligraphy] when I was little. It's a very good way to know Chinese culture. But it will take you a lot of time to practice. Once you do it well, [you will] feel like you are an artist."
If you are interested in attending this program, contact Shawn McGill at email@example.com .
It would be nice if we could get a group of Meetup group attendees to attend a class on the weekend!
