Family Program
Ancient Chinese Arts Today: Calligraphy
Sunday, April 19th, 2015 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
$15
(Members $10)

From ancient pictographs to modern ideographs, Chinese characters have been around for over 6,000 years and the writing of them has long been considered a discipline as well as an art. In this workshop, families will have the opportunity to see the intricacies of Chinese calligraphy demonstrated up-close by an instructor from the New York Chinese Cultural Center. Then they’ll pick up a traditional brush and learn to write and paint their own Chinese characters and landscapes with real ink on authentic rice paper.

Tickets to this program include Museum admission and families are welcome to visit the special exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion.
