Moments of Aug. 3rd Calligraphy Salon

Moments of Aug. 3rd Calligraphy Salon


On this past Saturday, Aug. 3rd, a Calligraphy Salon made specially for foreigners was hosted in Donghai City Square by Donghai Group Co. Ltd. It was organized by the Publicity Department of Futian District Committee (Civilization Office) and Xiangmihu Sub-district Office. As one of the sponsors, Natural Mandarin’s foreign students from Germany, Italy, France, Argentina and other countries attended this activity and participated in experiencing writing Chinese Characters using the Chinese Calligraphy Brush Pen well. Here I’d like to share some moments and works from the participants on that day.


At the very beginning, Calligraphy Teacher Zhang Chen explained the event details to everyone on site: 


Then before writing, he illustrated and taught how to hold the brush in the hand: 


It’s worth mentioning that there was an expert of Chinese Calligraphy who is from Mexico. He was introduced that he had been practicing it for over 6 years, and his calligraphy works won the 2ndprize during the competition last year. On that day, he helped coach some other foreigners how to write brush calligraphy:



By the way, he shared one tip for calligraphy, which is that adding Erguotou, Chinese Vodka, to the ink according to the proportion of 1:3 will help write characters more smoothly and beautifully. He showed us the pictures of the words written in two different ways, and so does it. Pity that I forgot to take a picture of them.


Before I finish my sharing, I have these photos of works from our students and our group of the day as below for your reference:

Natural Mandarin Family: 



Gerard from France: he’s saying that “I am a French”& 


“My teacher is very smart.”



Thomas from Germany thinks ”Shenzhen is very new” 


By the way, it was the ever first time he wrote brush calligraphy. So, a teacher taught him how to do it step by step: 



Beatrice from Italy: “Good luck one by one” & 


“I love China”



Jhon, a university student from Argentina: “Very happy to know China”        



and Kate, she expects “World Peace”. 



Last but not the least, thank you for your attention. We’re looking forward to seeing you in the activity next time we do.

All Natural Mandarin teachers are not only native Mandarin speakers, but have four-year university degrees with a major in teaching Mandarin as a second language.
