The Sign of Dao was established in January 2018, adjacent to the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. Under the cultivation of DAC, the academy 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.
“Write the Characters Together” is an ongoing calligraphy workshop of The Sign of Dao for the local people of Chongqing. Taking Chongqing’s local characteristic “Yanzi” (dialect) as the object of calligraphy creation, the local people are invited to recreate Chongqing “Yanzi”, and to appreciate, discuss and create calligraphy works with artists together.
A place where you live makes what kind of person you are. We hope to revisit Chongqing’s nature, region and humanities from the perspective of calligraphy, and explore the city’s literary atmosphere.
Through the vivid interpretation of Chinese characters, we hope to let participants skip obscure theories and go straight to the joy and creative pleasure of calligraphy. At the same time, it also allows participants to have a written dialogue with themselves, and find a moment of comfort and peace in the hustle and bustle of the city.
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 take a look at the vivid and spicy Chongqing dialect.
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 abstract calligraphic lines for creative design, and build a beautiful first experience between you and calligraphy during the game.
2. Feel the beauty of classics — Keep a good tradition. Learn about the oldest wisdom of Chinese characters 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.
