MADISON, NJ - The Madison Library has several events happening this week for residents. Here's what's on TAP

Monday January 27 - Learn about Chinese Calligraphy at 7pm

Chinese calligraphy is a type of pleasing writing, as well as a kind of sport, embodying the artistic expression of human language in a tangible form. This type of expression has been widely practiced in China and has been generally held in high esteem across East Asia. Four Treasures of the Study (文房四宝 wén fáng sì bǎo) is an expression used to refer to the ink brush, inkstick, paper and inkstone used in Chinese calligraphy and painting. The name stems from the time of the Southern and Northern Dynasties (420-589 AD). There is still work today for calligraphers and a substantial market for calligraphy scrolls produced in the traditional manner.
 Learn to write a few simple words using a traditional writing mat, paper, ink and brush. Taught by members of the Calligraphy Association of America.
