The Sign of Dao was established in January 2018, adjacent to the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. Under the cultivation of DAC, The Sign of Dao gradually grew. The Sign of Dao is committed to disseminating and promoting traditional Chinese culture, examining the past and understanding the present from a contemporary perspective. Moreover, The Sign of Dao also attracts and accumulates wise men from all corners of the world by studying literature, exploring history, and practicing calligraphy.
The calligraphy workshop of The Sign of Dao, Write the Characters Together, is about to start in Chengdu. Welcome to join us. Taking Chengdu’s local characteristic dialect and mahjong as the object of calligraphy creation, the local people are invited to recreate the culture of Chengdu.
Calligraphy provides people with a new perspective to see life, feel life, integrate into life, and taste life.
Calligraphy is like a forest in the mist. We will open up a path together through vivid explanations of characters, passing through the “obscurity” and “complexity” to the purest joy of calligraphy. The road through the forest is also the road to find the heart. Moreover, the trembling of the branches and the birdsong along the way is a self-talk.
A single tree cannot grow into a forest. We hope that friends of different ages, fields and nationalities can participate in this calligraphy workshop. Through calligraphy, we can meet and get to know each other. Besides, we can also help and love each other in calligraphy creation. As an ancient saying goes, “A bosom friend afar brings a distant land near. ” Whether you are a neighbor or come from afar, let’s experience the centuried and delicate Chengdu culture in the brush and ink.
Gathering from different dimensions, learning the sign of Dao, we will build a drama with love.
Come and join us, let’s write the characters together.
The workshop consists of three parts:
1. The first experience of the basic language of calligraphy — Lay a foundation. Extract the Sichuan-Chongqing culture in mahjong and dialects, and then use abstract calligraphic lines to create and design, so that you can build a beautiful first experience with calligraphy during the game.
2. Feel the beauty of classics — Keep a good tradition. Learn about the oldest wisdom of Chinese characters and calligraphy in the process of copying calligraphy copybooks.
3. The creation of Chinese calligraphy concept — New creation. Combine the wisdom of the ancients with the creativity of today’s people to experience different calligraphy.
We hope that all participants will open up a new world and re-understand calligraphy through these three parts of thinking and experience.
