Chinese Cultural & Arts -Alameda
USAKFS prides itself in being able to provide elite training in the traditional Chinese cultural arts in a nationally and internationally recognized program by professional trained and recognized Master instructors.
This Course is designed to help beginning students lay groundwork for the study of modern Chinese. By introducing Pinyin, tones, Chinese Radicals and Chinese Characters, the course will help students to develop the oral fluency, the vocabulary expansion capabilities, and especially the writing skills. In this course, we will also introduce Chinese literature and culture gradually by telling stories and analyzing poems.
Chinese Painting & Calligraphy:
The classes follow the traditional master/student teaching method with students starting with basic learning the brush strokes, and control of the ink. Students will then move on to other plants and animals, and eventually and landscapes. The Chinese calligraphy classes follow the same methods with concentration on learning traditional characters and stylized brush strokes.
