At the noon of 24th October, Experiencing Chinese calligraphy Exhibition was hold by Confucius Institute of University West Paris Nanterre La Defense in Student Centre. This exhibition has been received appreciation from participants.
In the beginning, Mr. ZHANG Liang introduced the posture and technique of holding and using the writing brush. Meanwhile, he encouraged the participants to practice the basic strokes. Most participants were beginners, but they found great interests in practicing the calligraphy on their own hand. At the end of experiencing exhibition, they did not only know how to hold the writing brush, but also could write down several Chinese characters, all of which encouraged them to search for further understanding of Chinese culture.
In 2013 - 2014, in cooperation with Culture Department, Confucius Institute of University West Paris launches a series of activities of ‘Experiencing Chinese Culture ’. As one of such activities, Experiencing Chinese Calligraphy will be hold regularly this year to provide more opportunities for French participants to have the closest contact with Chinese art.
