When I was arriving, I was greeted by the most excited man named Richard who started the Hutong Calligraphy school. He told me that he would be the translator for my class, and that I was the only one participating today. Well, was I in for a treat! My teacher, Mr Sun Guanglu, not only a brilliant watercolour artist, but also a pyrography master where he burns his artwork into wood. I was so privileged to spend one-on-one time with him today in this workshop. The most incredible part of the whole experience was that he didn't speak English, yet the flow of the whole workshop just meant that I knew exactly what he wanted me to do and how he wanted me to hold the brush and the amount of ink he wanted me to use... ART IS THE MOST UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE AND I AM SO INSPIRED.
