This class will focus on running style of Chinese calligraphy the semi-cursive style which is the mid point of the five styles: Seal; Clerical; Running (semi-cursive); Cursive; Regular. This is a more flowing style in which strokes are allowed to run into each other. It is most similar to hand-writing and can therefore be read more easily.
