The practice of Gongbi painting nurtures us, cultivates our souls.
The art of writing, calligraphy, has many formed in the world. In essence, they are all mainly about how to write something beautifully. However, the Chinese calligraphy has a philosophical aspect to it as well. It is no longer “writing”, the lines created, the Qi used, and the attention required is more comparable to martial arts practice – an alliance of the body and the mind.
The oriental culture is the main axe that connects the various art forms. In our courses, the culture as well as the philosophy will be discussed, in order for you to have the most original oriental experience. Besides, many of these culture aspects are essential in leading a mindful life!
