CPC Nan Shan Senior Center presents Chinese calligraphy, paper cutting and craft workshops to celebrate the lunar year of the tiger. Artist Ming Liang Lu will introduce the history and evolution of Chinese calligraphy to participants who will learn basic techniques of calligraphy structure and layout. Master Lu will also demonstrate paper-cutting, an ancient Chinese art form dating from the Han Dynasty in a hands-on workshop. Sharlene Chou will lead mixed media craft making workshops with lunar year themes. Participants will use mixed media to create artwork for the final presentation and exhibit, open to the public. The 13-week course is divided into three modules: Chinese Calligraphy, Paper Cutting, and Chinese Folk Craft Arts. There will be one session per week starting from August 4 to October 22. On October 27, there will be a Final Presentation Event when students will proudly display their artwork.
