Activity description

Explore the fascinating world of Shodō, the traditional Japanese Calligraphy Art with hundreds of years of history!

Master of Shodō Kōji Takano has improved the ability to convey the deepest emotions of the human soul through the calligraphic improvisation process.
In his career he gave comfort to more than 30,000 people, transferring the impressions originated from their inner selves to paper.

Takano sensei will teach you a personal approach to Calligraphy that consists in express yourself in a totally free artistic process, expanding your creativity and your originality to give life to a very unique piece of art.

Kanji are not just signs, but characters that assume multiple significance in different contexts. The meaning of each kanji increases, changes, and gets new nuances over time.
You will not simply learn to write the characters in the correct sequence, but you will have a chance to expand your own imagination to shape your personal vision of what the words convey.

Join us and discover the secrets of Shodō Art!
