Calligraphy is the essence of Chinese culture, which has developed into a special high-level art apart from satisfying the needs of daily writing. It has been flourishing for thousands of years inChina. Shops with strong commercial atmosphere will gain some elegance if they are decorated with some quaint cultural calligraphic works.
Sitting rooms, studies and bedrooms can be nice-looking with calligraphy works decorated. As a kind of art work, the writing of calligraphy is particular. The Chinese characters are written on Xuan paper which absorbs ink very well and then are mounted to hang on a wall. The calligraphy works are mostly a poem or a motto that the host of the room likes it much; if it is written by the host himself, it will demonstrate more his aspiration and interest as well as his talent.

She is a calligrapher in our class! Mr. Zhang likes her words very much, and praises her good words, which makes me "envious, jealous and hateful". No one knows her words. It's called a stick! It's horizontal and vertical. It's very beautiful!
I will learn from her in the future.
I'm delighted that you're coming to China as an exchange student. I'm writing to convey my warm welcome.
I know you show great interest in Chinese calligraphy, so I'd like to recommend a course in calligraphy offered by our school. Calligraphy is the art of producing beautiful writing using brushes, which is not only a technique for writing Chinese characters but also a way to bring people inner peace. The course is given by Mr. Chen, who is experienced in this field and popular with students. It's given at 9a.m. every Saturday in school library and is especially suitable for beginners, for Mr. Chen will teach the basic skills in calligraphy.

As we all know, the four treasures of the study are writing brush, ink, paper and ink stone, which are essential to learn Chinese calligraphy. As to the way to learn it, I think, for one thing, you may study the basic structure of each Chinese character step by step;for another, choosing a good model book to copy is of great benefit to you.
Chinese calligraphy is a fine art of the excellent traditional cultures in China. Not only does it do good to health, but also it can cultivate morality and purify our souls.
Hoping you can come to China to enjoy it personally.
