Learn Japanese Calligraphy CD02

Japanese Calligraphy is all about movement and movement simply cannot be taught in a book. This is why we offer our unique courses on CD-ROM. Each CD in the series shows detailed explanations, stroke order, and frame by frame analysis and there are over thirty videos showing proper technique for brushing the character.

Along with the correct way to brush the character, student samples and videos are also shown with corrections and explanations. By showing both right and wrong technique one learns what is correct and how to fix what is not.

This CD work on Microsoft Windows, Mac and Linux and all major browsers include Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox.

Kaisho Basic: CD 2

This is the second section of the Takase Shodokai Japanese Calligraphy Series.

Here we continue to focus on the basic strokes of the kaisho font. Remember that kaisho is a bold and precise style. Our emphasis in this section is to continue to practice the lines and strokes previously introduced.

Lesson 7 – shu (Lord)

Lesson 7 gives us a chance to revisit the three yokoga that we first worked on in lesson 2.

Lesson 8 – tsuki (Moon)

Tsuki gives us a chance to practice a hidaribarai along with a tensetsu that ends in a tategahane. Tsuki is a deceptively simple character that is often seen in Japanese Calligraphic works.

Lesson 9 – hana (Flower)

Hana is going to give us good practice in contrasting the harai and hane strokes as there are two each in this character.

Lesson 10 – iwa (Rock)

Iwa gives us a chance to revisit tensetsu which has two that are in opposite directions.

Lesson 11 – tomo (Friend)

Tomo gives us the opportunity to practice the harai strokes. There are three in this one simple character with two hidaribarai and one migibarai.

Lesson 12 – me (Eye)

We have been practicing the harai and hane strokes in most of the characters. For this final lesson we are going to use me which is all tatega, yokoga and tensetsu.
