for Adults


Japanese calligraphy (called “shodo” in Japanese) means “the way of writing”, but it is actually the art of writing beautifully. Kanji are the Chinese characters that were introduced to Japan via Korea in the 5th Century. Before the introduction of the Chinese characters, there was no writing system in Japan.


We are proud to offer separate classes for adults in Japanese Calligraphy with Master Calligrapher Kazuko Kano.

This adult Calligraphy class will teach you how to write kanji correctly and beautifully. Shodo takes concentration and focus but, the more you practice, the more you will enjoy working with the deep black ink to create beautiful works that please the eye and mind. Moreover, Shodo is a superb means for relieving stress and centering one’s self.
