Sho "Kajin"(書’佳人’) 

The meaning of "kajin"is as follows: "Ka(佳)" is beautiful and intelligent. Jin(人)is person. So I gave this name to my course with the aim of becoming such a person through "Sho"
Sho "Kajin"'s (書’佳人’) is a place for Japanese calligraphy, open for Japanese, Dutch, and adults with other nationalities.
Not only it is a place for persons who want to learn "sho", but also a place for "Sho"lovers to communicate.


From beginner to highest level.
Step by step, you can learn various calligraphy figures and styles.
You start by copying examples and later you can develop your own creativity.

Figures: blocked, semi running, and running, Japanese female calligraphy (Kana) etcetera.
Styles: from traditional until modern
At the conclusion of one year you can make scrolls and timbers for a good display ofyour own calligraphy.

We will exhibit the final results.
