Chinese Calligraphy Basic Strokes in Kai Shu Style


Let’s begin by learning some basic strokes. We’ve chosen Kai Shu (Print Style) because along with Xing Shu (Running Style ) it is the most often used and in many ways the most practical and beginner friendly.

Follow the stoke diagrams in numerical order and from top to bottom, left to right. Pay close attention to the inner lines, which indicate where to set down the tip of your brush, and which direction to move it.
