The Benefits of Learning Chinese Calligraphy
In ancient China and Japan, a boy who writes well is more attractive to a girl.
There is a Chinese saying that a man is the same as his handwriting, which shows that we still admire those whose writing looks beautiful. Even today, in modern times, training in calligraphy can make one:
3. insightful, perspective and creative;
4. understand things more deeply;
5. able to express and vent their inner feelings reasonably and appropriately.
These are the four stages of calligraphy. Calligraphers are required to learn each style. However, over time, everyone develops their unique font. Beginners start learning the official script and gradually learn the regular calligraphy script for the next three years. Mastering the running script takes another eight to ten years and finally developing ones unique cursive script can last a lifetime.
