Description:

Paperback. 160 pages. Dimensions: 9.6in. x 7.5in. x 0.7in.Rebecca Yues unique approach to calligraphy comes from years of teaching this ancient art. Most teachers prefer to demonstrate all of the basic brushstrokes before teaching you how to form words. In Rebeccas experience, however, students soon become bored with this method and fail to progress. Whilst teaching new brushstrokes, Chinese Calligraphy Made Easy allows the reader to practise them, and brushstrokes learnt previously, by writing Chinese words. From this, the reader feels a sense of achievement and satisfaction at the end of every lesson - which, in turn, stimulates them to look forward to the next exercise. As the lessons progress, the words introduced become more complicated. When there are enough words to form phrases, projects are introduced. These include painting Chinese characters onto a bonsai pot, a t-shirt, a vase and making personalised greeting cards. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Are you interested in taking the first steps to becoming a Chinese calligraphy master? This book employs unique, systematic teaching methods to help you build up from basic to advanced brushstrokes—enabling you to create new words with each brushstroke you learn.

Inside Chinese Calligraphy Made Easy you’ll find two fold-out cover flaps carrying key information to remind you of the anatomy of each character. A series of lessons and projects, organized to build the reader’s knowledge and make the art of calligraphy as enjoyable as it is graceful.  The method is innovative, the learning solid: the five major styles of Chinese calligraphy (Kai Shu, Hsing Shu, Chuan Shu, Li Shu, and Tsao) are covered in depth. Now anyone can learn this 4,000-year-old art in just a few weeks!

About the Author: Rebecca Yue began to learn Chinese brush painting at the age of ten. She followed strict disciplines under three masters; one specialized in landscape painting and the other two in bird and flower painting. Rebecca's systematic approach to learning has brought her a large number of devoted followers. Rebecca lives in Bath.
