Chinese Culture and Community Service Center, Inc.
Painting & Calligraphy Club 中心書畫藝術社

Headed by volunteer instructor 
Kit-Keung Kan  (靳杰强), the classes treat the fundamentals and advanced techniques in the art of Chinese calligraphy and landscape paintings. In calligraphy, all of the five major scripts, i.e. the seal (), scribe (), cursive (), standard () and semi-cursive () scripts, are studied depending on the interests and proficiency of the students. In landscape painting, Mr. Kan plans to lead studies in the techniques of old masters such as 范寬郭熙巨然夏圭吳鎮倪瓚黃公望王蒙etc. and to conduct outdoor sketch sessions after the students grasped the basic techniques. Artistic development of individual students is emphasized. There are two calligraphy sessions and two landscape painting sessions each year, with the sessions alternating with each other. The length of each session is about two and half months.

Saturday, 3:00–5:00 pm,

Location:  Room 151A, Tilden Middle School, 11211 Old Georgetown Road, Rockville, MD.

Fee: $50 per session for CCACC members and $60 per session for non-members.
