      Chinese calligraphy serves the purpose of conveying thought but also shows the 'abstract' beauty of the line. Rhythm, line, and structure are more perfectly embodied in calligraphy than in painting or sculpture. Artistic Characters and rules: Every Chinese character is built up in its own square with variety of structure and composition. The World of Shodo. Our mission is to help you learn about or improve your shodo / calligraphy, inspire you and have others discover your work and love it.

      The Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting (SCH) enjoys being part of a community of societies, Join the Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting Join our guild, attend meetings and learn calligraphy & hand lettering skills with friends. A mere bragging of one's ability to write certain number of Chinese characters per minute or per hour is evidently showing one's lack of real knowledge and skills of Chinese brush arts, where these may happen often among amateurs, beginners, and pedants who have read many Chinese calligraphy books from libraries.
