Year 10 Japanese Experience Shodo Calligraphy

Ms Potter’s Year 10 Japanese recently had the opportunity to experience shodo calligraphy with our visiting Japanese Assistant, Shuma Suezumi.
They were able to confidently reproduce the kanji characters for the four seasons Spring, Summer , Autumn and Winter using traditional ink (sumi) and brush (fude) techniques.

We also welcomed our current French assistant Celina, who speaks Japanese into our special Japanese calligraphy class and shared our experiences with language learning.

We thank Shuma for his contributions to Years 7-11 Japanese during his four weeks here and wish him well into the future!
