UCA CI held a one-month calligraphy class for the community at Faulkner County library. The class was held from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, every Monday during the month of April, allowing the community the opportunity to learn and practice an art form that is a novelty to the community. The goal of this class was to introduce traditional Chinese calligraphy to the community and help them understand Chinese culture through calligraphy.
32 community members signed up for the class. One of the students, Kevin Mequet said, I have been wanted to learn Chinese calligraphy for a long time, thanks for this great experience, I enjoyed every minute of it.
By the end of the one-month class, the Faulkner County Library wrote a letter of appreciation to the instructor, Dr. Guo-ou Zhuang, director of UCA Confucius Institute, in which they express gratitude to the Confucius Institute for offering the April series of Chinese Calligraphy classes to the patrons and the general public. The library received only praise from the participants, who have expressed pleasure, a sense of inspiration and joy, and a deep interest in the art of Chinese Calligraphy.
