※Online Practice = Voluntary Classes (No teaching / No charge)
We only have two sessions per year: Spring and Fall sessions. This is because Summer and Winter are the busy holiday season or vacation time. However, to improve our Shodo skills, we meet on-line voluntarily and practice together periodically without any charge.
- 2 Sessions / year (Spring・Fall) + Online Practice together (Summer・Winter)
■ Saturdays - Bi-weekly
■ 5 classes ■ 1h 30mins
■ Beginners: 9:30am～/ Intermedaite: 10:00am～
■ ＠Sevier Park Community Center(see the map→)
■ 13 year old +(ask if you want to learn with your younger kids)
What is the difference between Shuji and Shodo? Shuji-習字 is learning calligraphy and drawing precisely based on Otehon. Shodo-書道 is drawing calligraphy artistically with your own style.
My teaching method is a mix of Shuji and Shodo. I would like you to learn Shuji first beause Shuji is basic to understanding the structure of letters which is very important for moving up to Shodo as the next step!
Unique approach! Beyond Shodo!
Shodo 書道 is Art!
I add some Sumi-e techniques into Shodo pieces. Students create their own designs!

For those who have never learned Shodo before or learned Shodo only for few years. Someone who really wants to learn Shodo at the very basic level. It is OK if you are not familiar with Japanese Hiragana and Kanji(Chinese Characters). We also practice yourHiragana name.
