Opinion of a seminar student-Faculty of Human Sciences- Department of Humanities /Fourth year.

It will expand your horizons about art by exposing you to the world view residing outside the realm of calligraphy.

In this seminar class, you will come to learn about various art skills such as ink painting, ceramics, carving letters and soukoutenboku ( a specialized form of calligraphy-copying old calligraphic work through placing a thin paper on original work and writing above it) among others. The number of students in this class is around 15 people. Their warm and open attitudes contribute to the cordial atmosphere of this class. Since the world view with which we approach art in this class is not strictly confined to calligraphy, it opens you to new dimensions making you feel different. The more you practice calligraphy the more you are exposed to new problems, therefore this seminar class provides me with an avenue to search for new ways to broaden my horizon and look outside the box.

Look for new horizons and act positive

In here, you will not only learn about calligraphy (theory and skill) but also other arts such as ink painting, ceramics, carving letters, designing and photography. Art is an expression of our daily life. I feel that it is important to be creative and look for real things in life without being influenced by others. To do so, it is imperative to approach things with a broader perspective, challenge yourself and act positively. This is the motto of my life. The skills required for effective job hunting varies in accordance with the changing era. Today we have an abundance of students who persist in upgrading or developing skills only, which may be a good approach but a very limited one. Hence, in this seminar class, I encourage the students to work conscientiously in cooperation with each other including the teacher and while doing so, not to ignore but discover and reinforce their individual strength and originality
