Since this is a dying art, it has been awhile since I've been commercially active, but I have taught classes before and have the supplies. I'd be most willing to share what I know with others who would be interested in keeping this art form alive!

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

Japanese calligraphy is a form of calligraphy, or artistic writing, of the Japanese language.

In modern calligraphy, a number of tools are used to make a composition. Most basic four tools were collectively called Four Treasures of the Study (Bun-bou Shi-hou).

You need to purchase at Japanese store or Amazon.com

1. A brush
2. An inkstick (sumi).
3. Mulberry paper (washi)
4. An inkstone (suzuri) to grind the inkstick against, mixed with water.

5. A paper weight (bunchin) to hold the paper in place
6. A cloth (shitajiki) to place under the paper (often newsprint is used as well) to prevent ink from bleeding through.

*Cancellation policy* : all class cancellations and reschedules must be done 24 hours in advance before the scheduled lesson. Otherwise, you will be charged for the missed lesson. Please note: if you singed up for classes with me, you have agreed to my cancellation and reschedule policy. If you are late 15 minutes or more for class without prior ...

I can't not tell you how wonderful Toshi is! My son has been taking lessons with Toshi and is so excited and motivated. Toshi has a great way of teaching and his method of teaching really works. I highly recommend trying out lessons with Toshi you will not regret it; and you'll be speaking in no time.

Toshi is very fun to talk to and is always very nice and really teaches you how to pronounce the words and things of that nature. You learn a lot of vocabulary which is very useful.

I've been teaching Calligraphy for 5 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start writing basic letters and as time goes on you'll be able to feel more comfortable with calligraphy, . I use specialized books and my experience; I have a plans for each level of my calligraphy lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Wonderful, patient, good demo of technique. I was nervous that taking a class on calligraphy online wouldn't work well. It does, Monika is very good, I felt like she was right beside me the entire time

It was great! After a bit of tech problems on both sides we had a good session. Monika's first lesson was fun and a good choice for me. I look forward to our next lesson.

I have been practicing Calligraphy in a lot of western styles and Eastern from Copperplate to Blackletter to all sorts of Arabic Diwany, Naskh, Riq3a and A lot of Chinese and Japanese Brush styles. I can teach you the rules and provide you with ways to practice the letters. I also can teach you hand lettering which is different from Calligraphy in that the rules are much looser and it is very stylized, and is a lot more fun :)

Moataz is an excellent calligraphy teacher. My 12 year old daughter, Isabella, learned a lot from him in just one session. His instruction is very understandable on-line, and we plan to schedule more sessions with him.
