On 1st December, themed workshop "Chinese Calligraphy Experience" was organized by the Confucius Institute at University of Banja Luka on the campus of Banja Luka University. Three Chinese professors explained the history of Chinese calligraphy and invited the participants to take part in and experience the writing of Chinese characters with brush. All the participants were enthusiastic and showed their interest in it.

On-the-spot teaching

At the beginning of the activity, Mr. Wu appreciated the famous calligraphy works together with everyone, then taught them how to use the writing brush, how to write basic strokes, and finally led them to complete a calligraphy work together. After the event, participants said they felt a lot and thought that they could improve their personal accomplishments and cultivate their artistic sentiment by practicing calligraphy. A local folk artist said, "Chinese characters are a very beautiful symbol. Calligraphy only uses a simple black color to vividly embody the beauty of this symbol. The Calligraphy Workshop provides a lot of inspiration for his future artistic creation."
