This workshop will teach youth aged 14 to 21 to discover calligraphy. Calligraphy is a great way for youth from all walks of life to discover and express their voice. The practice of calligraphy has been proven to increase cognitive brain function and mind-body co-ordination. This workshop will connect youth with passionate professional artists and build confidence in their calligraphy skills in a positive and encouraging environment.
