Shodo (Japanese Calligraphy) tends to be focused on its aesthetics of drawing but it also helps you to face yourself. It calms and heals your mind and makes you concentrate on expressing your feelings in the drawing. In addition, it helps correction of posture and increases your concentration which works on brain activation.
In this workshop, the Art director Mokuho Shingai will hold a lecture about essential knowledge of calligraphy with an original point of view. He wil let you express your favorite character freely without taking it as “difficult” or “hard”.
After drawing, sit around the table with your calligraphy to compare each others work and find yourself see differently or feel new values in yourself.
Mr. Shinga, who designed the packaging for Yona Yona Ale and the Onsen logo for Hoshino Resort has also recieved awards for Japanese packaging design and typography. He will give you help in creating original ideas from his achievements.
