Many thanks to Shiny for adding Chinese calligraphy for the kids' experiences in learning Mandarin Chinese. We will have Chinese calligraphy classes in the following weeks and in the summer camp from June to August 8, 2006. There are over 50 kids attending the calligraphy classes during this summer.

It seems that all the kids here, whether they are Chinese, American, Asian American, or African American,  enjoy writing the Chinese character "dragon" the most. They all seem to believe in the legacy or myth. The kids even want "dragons" to be written and painted on their shirts.

There are many ways to write dragons in different  calligraphy styles throughout the Chinese dynasties.

Different Chinese calligraphy styles of Dragons

The above styles of "dragons" were derived from the following Seal Styles, the early Chinese characters:



A student from India writing "dragon" with 
a Chinese brush the first time in his life.

An 8-year-old boy's copied writing in his second class.

Girls practice writing "dragons"

Kids receiving birthday blessing words and a painting


A boy concentrating on his writing


Girls listening before practice





    These are some of the students' practice sheets as for the first week. Except for one student, 

all students have never used a Chinese calligraphy brush. Some of them just started learning Chinese.
