On the afternoon of June 21, Geng Guangzhi, who is the university deputy Communist Party Secretary, was invited to give an academic lecture on “a brief history of Chinese calligraphy” at the meeting room 8208 in School of Art and Design. Bian Ka, the secretary of the School of Art and Design, presided over the lecture.
Secretary Geng began the lecture from calligraphy creation, introduced the required basic knowledge, methods and requirements of learning calligraphy, and pointed out that the best way to learn calligraphy well is imitating. One could sense the calligraphic knowledge by learning predecessors' excellent works, thus one could effectively improve his self-cultivation. Secondly, Geng emphasized that the idea of creation is the best way to express one's feelings, and one’s sincere and sensitive feelings could be directly reflected through creating. By listening to the lecture, the teachers and students were keenly aware of the profound art of calligraphy.
This calligraphy lecture provided a valuable opportunity for our teachers and students to learn Chinese calligraphy. It deepened the students' understanding of Chinese calligraphy, and guided them to learn to inherit the Chinese traditional culture.
