Calligraphy is an art that is defined by a drop of ink at the end of the brush. It does not accept even the slightest hesitation from the inked brush. This is why the calligraphy Practitioner must know how to concentrate, manage one’s mood and control one’s own emotion. Lack of concentration leads to mistakes. This is why Koreans usually say that they can learn self-control and concentration through calligraphy. The course will also provide knowledge of the Korean language through the practice of writing the 24 basic Korean characters (10 consonants and 14 vowels).

Teacher: Jounghee Kim

The Life of the artist Jeounghee Kim has developed in two main areas: calligraphy and Plastic art. The four years of professional practice of calligraphy under the guidance of calligrapher Yoon Gil-sun brought him the second prize of calligraphy completion in his youth.
