China Lanzhou News Network on September 24 (all media reporter Li Xiao) “It is always a pleasure to greet a friend from afar...” On September 24th, students from Tongwei Road Primary School in Lanzhou City, dressed in Hanfu, welcomed Shao Peiying, a member of the Seal Script Professional Committee of the Chinese Calligraphers Association and Vice Chairman of the Tianjin Calligraphers Association, with traditional etiquette, to share his experience and gained knowledge of learning calligraphy.
At 10 o’clock in the morning, the students of the calligraphy interest class came to the school's calligraphy practice room early, waiting for the arrival of the calligrapher Shao Peiying in an orderly manner. As soon as Shao Peiying entered the door, he was warmly welcomed by the students. Teacher Mou from the Calligraphy Club of Tongwei Road Primary School said happily, “For these children with a certain foundation, the professional guidance given by famous calligrapher to children will accelerate the improvement of children’s understanding of calligraphy, which is a very precious experience for them.”
The calligraphy practice room is full of fun. Shao Peiying shared his own story of learning calligraphy with the students, and also gave targeted guidance to the students’ calligraphy works. Wang Quanjin, grade 6 of Tongwei Road Primary School, told reporters that this is not the first time the school has organized an event to invite famous calligraphy masters into the campus. “The calligraphy I wrote before was rather rigid. Today, the teacher taught me how to express the overall agility of the work through the size of the words, which is very useful to me.”
The “Calligraphers Entering Campus” is part of the 2021 Lanzhou calligraphy series of “Red heart to the party, calligraphy sends love to the party”.
