书法 - Chinese Calligraphy

 中国是唯一一个将古老的文字作为艺术的国家,中国的文字艺术的表现形式,我们称之为书法,就是在宣纸上靠毛笔运动的灵活多变和水墨的丰富性,留下斑斑墨迹,在纸面上形成有意味的黑白构成,所以,书法艺术,讲究的是在简单的线条中求得丰富的思想内涵,它不求外表的俏丽,而注重内在的生命感,从朴实中表现出韵味。书写时手、眼、脑的协调配合,高度集中的精神状态,对人体各系统的调节发育都有好处。书写中,笔的疾驰、徐缓、飞动、顿挫,都受主观的驱使,成为其情感、情绪的发泄,所以,书法是一种表现性艺术;书家能够通过作品把个人的生活感受、学识、修养、个性等悄悄的折射出来,所以通常有“书如其人、书为心画”说法。

China is only home to ancient characters. One manifestation of character arts is calligraphy, in which we show Chinese brush’s flexibility as well as ink and wash’s complexity. Intentional ink marks and significant black-and-white construction on paper forms great Chinese calligraphy art. So we can embody rich ideological content by simply lines. Getting rid of its exaggerating appearance, we probe into inner sense of life, and we will find calligraphy’s elegant charm through simplicity. Good body’s coordination and concentrated mental status are essential for writing calligraphy, but then again, latter is good for your body when you practice properly. During the writing course, brush’s fast and slow, free and easy as well as cadence are driven by writer’s subjectivity. So for many people, calligraphy becomes a tool to express their feelings directly. As an expressive art, calligraphy can reflect writers’feelings of life, knowledge, culture and personality. Given this, we have following view: Calligraphy indicating own personalities.

国画 - Chinese Traditional Painting

 书画不分家,有书自有画,中国画以线条为造型的主要手段,讲究用笔,用墨,使线、墨、色交相辉映,达到"气韵生动"的艺术效果;特色之二,为"托物喻情,画中有诗",特色之三为诗,情、画、印融为一体。中国画强调“外师造化,中得心源”,要求“意存笔先,画尽意在”,强调融化物我,创制意境,达到以形写神,形神兼备,气韵生动。加上国画欣赏性很强,工序复杂,绘画要求严格,在整个操作过程中,不仅培养大家养成耐心细致、持之以恒的做事态度,还能提高审美及综合能力.

We Chinese all know: calligraphy and paintings(C&P)are not separated or independent. C&P are made to contrast and complement each other in lines, ink and colors, so leave either of them independently is not intact. After learning all means by C&P, we sum up 3 significant traits: firstly, Chinese traditional paintings with lively spirit and charm. Secondly, you can express your sentiments or emotions through your C&P. Thirdly, integrate calligraphy, poetry, paintings as well as seal and inscribe perfectly. Chinese brush painting emphases on “Art comes from life and combine artist’s inspiration and creation”Chinese paintings need get a broad outline in heart first, then the paintings could be natural and fluent, express what you want. Chinese traditional paintings are particular over conveying spirit out of form but unity of form. “Lively spirit and charm”paintings with complex procedures highlight creating artistic conception are worth our appreciating. Not only can patient and painstaking, persevere attitude be fostered in course of learning rigorous demand paintings, we can improve our comprehensive aesthetics ability. 

茶道 - Chinese Tea Ceremony

 中国是茶的故乡,也是世界上最早发现茶树、制茶,饮茶的国家,同时也是世界茶道的宗主国,任何国家受中国茶文化的影响都不能否认中国是茶道宗主国的地位,否则违背了茶道的基本文明。茶树的起源至少已有六七万年的历史。我国第一部药学专着《神农本草经》记载:“神农尝百草,日遇七十二毒,得茶而解之。”这说明,在距今7000年前的神农时代,中国就发现了茶叶,并且知道了茶叶具有神奇的药用作用。茶叶,是最天然、最健康的饮料,也是最具有文化内涵的饮料。茶叶具有健康、天然、文化、文明以及时尚的非凡魅力,受到全世界人的喜爱。而学习茶道是从学习茶之“礼仪”开始的。茶道礼仪与中华礼仪一脉相承,是中华礼仪的重要组成部份。中华文化中,“礼”占据着极为重要的地位,在此可以培养出极好的风度。而这种风度会随时表现在平时的待人接物之上,会伴随着我们的一生。茶道是博大精深的,一个茶道大师,学识修为和艺术修养也必是极高的。用茶道去影响孩子,其实就是为他们打开了中国语言文化和国学的大门。
