Theme: かな書道-Japanese Calligraphy KANA SHODO-

Lecture (YouTube Live): 15:00pm-16:00pm

"Kana Shodo" is calligraphy written in the "kana" script, which is a uniquely Japanese script.
Kana characters developed during the Heian period (794-1185) as a cultural art form with beauty as well as a role in conveying the meaning of the Japanese language.
And kana calligraphy has now become a part of traditional Japanese culture.
It is a great opportunity to learn about calligraphy academically and artistically by experiencing the beauty of the kana characters.

Special Calligraphy Class: 16:15pm-17:00pm

Join us for a fun hands-on calligraphy class held after the YouTube live streaming ends.
