The benefits of learning calligraphy for children

1, Intellectual development, good health

When children learn calligraphy, they mainly use their hands, training their fingers, wrists and arms to be more coordinated and flexible. These movements rely on the brain to command them. And regular training is beneficial to brain development. Children are at their best when it comes to brain development, so practicing calligraphy can greatly promote their brain development and intellectual development.

In addition, when children practice calligraphy, their fingers, wrists, elbows, arms, shoulders, etc all move rhythmically with the writing. And various organs get some exercise, which can regulate the meridians and smooth breathing, so that the heart and hands correspond, which is good for health.

2、Cultivate good moral sentiment

In the ancient times, there were many great calligraphers with excellent character and learning, and their diligent and studious spirit is worthy of emulation by children. For example, Wang Xizhi studied calligraphy so that the pond was full of ink, and Yan Zhenqing was upright as an official …… These deeds have a strong influence on cultivating children’s perseverance and moral character, so that children know how to behave in the process of learning.

3、Cultivate good qualities

By learning calligraphy, children can develop the qualities of meticulousness, concentration, composure and persistence. Calligraphy is a delicate activity. In order to write well, one must be fully focused, concentrated and quiet, carefully observe the structure of the characters. And have the brain, eyes and hands correspond, and accurately control the weight and lightness of the strokes, slowly exercising children’s mental qualities and enabling them to develop good qualities for future development.

Practicing calligraphy also develops children’s observation, thinking and expression skills. When children practice calligraphy, teachers will consciously guide them to observe and analyze the differences in strokes and the structure of the characters, train how to move the strokes, and allow children to perceive and appreciate the beauty of calligraphy and think about how to write in order to produce good-looking characters.

4、To cultivate temperament and exercise will

Children must learn calligraphy from the beginning, from the brush strokes to the structure to the chapter, copying more and creating more, which can slowly cultivate their temperament. Some children, when they first start to learn calligraphy, lose their focus and become restless But after a period of time, they can slowly eliminate their restlessness and quietly write.

5、Develop personality and cultivate the spirit of innovation

Calligraphy is about promoting innovation and pursuing individuality. In the early stages of learning calligraphy, children will copy the calligraphy of the ancients in order to accumulate a large amount of material in their brains to pave the way for future creation, and then create according to their own personalities. So the process of teaching calligraphy from copying to creation is actually the process that allows children to move unconsciously from imitation to innovation.

6、Improve aesthetic quality

Children learn calligraphy to purify their minds and improve their aesthetic quality. The teacher will ask the children to write according to the correct strokes in the usual teaching, striving to write correctly, standardized, neat and beautiful, thus gradually feeling the beauty of the Chinese characters’ form, helping the children to establish the correct aesthetic beauty, infecting them with beauty and inspiring them to pursue beauty and create beauty.

It is not recommended to practice English calligraphy simply for the purpose of taking exams rather than as a hobby or to develop the body and mind.

First of all, if you want to talk about English calligraphy, you must talk about round forms. The so-called round style is probably a generic term. It does not refer to a particular kind. There are many types in round style English.

Cursive

If you have to use it in everyday writing, Cursive is probably it. But it is not suitable for exams. One reason is that it requires several years of practice to form a mature font, however the teacher may not like it. I have suffered a great loss here.

Then the question arises, how to write a good-looking exam?

There are two options.

1- Practice handwriting.

Let’s give some information about it.
