All classes at the JCCC location have been suspended until further notice.

In Japan, calligraphy is considered one of the fine arts. It not only implies the skilful writing of characters in the usual meaning of the English word "calligraphy", but also the entire culture associated with it as a discipline. It is a sister art to poetry and painting.


Noriko Maeda studied Shodo for many years before establishing Kuran no Kai in 1982, an organization to further the study and teaching of Japanese calligraphy. Ms. Maeda has exhibited her works both in Canada and Japan.
