Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

There is an old saying in Taiwan “1st Fu, 2nd Lu, 3rd Meng-Jia”. The 2nd Lu means Lu-Kang, which was one of most important town of culture in Taiwan history. History researchers called the 4th period of the Taiwan Culture “Lu-Kang Period”, which was from 1684 to 1842. The Penmanship Association Of Chong Jin was established in the little old town, Lu Kang, which we could meet the cultural elements every where in the cornors in the old streets. Let's appreciate and enjoy the grace and beauty of the art of penmanship.

2. Summary of Our Project

Calligraphy is an unique art. It has unique tools and ways of writing. They mean a writer’s character, personality and humanism quality. Calligraphers in every epoch would add newer aesthetic ideas into this art. This is one of the most philosophical ideas in figurative arts. Lukang, as a literary place, is famous for its poetry, painting, calligraphy and artworks. The tradition has been passed down since Qing dynasty. In 1980, a Lukang’s famous calligraphers ??? thought this art was fadding away and had only few successors and then founded the Chong Jin Calligraphy club. He also formally registered Penmanship Association Of Chong Jin to regain ancient quaint writing styles. He devoted himself to combine calligraphy’s learning and studying into life.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

A.Not be familiar with the topic: First, The Penmanship Association of Chong Jin is strange to us. After reading the magazines about The Penmanship Association of Chong Jin, we understand the origin of it. Though several interviews with Master Nian and school teachers, I am familiar with the study. B.Time Arrangement: Because we need to use the leisure time after school and after class. Therefore, time arrangement was very important for all the members of the team. Time is money. C.Slow Speed of Typing : Since that all of the study procedures had to be record by means of the computer, it was a tough task that this is our first time to conduct the mission by typing all the way. When using the keyboard, there was a big problem that we could use one finger at one time. I took lots of time to type a whole paper. D. Get to the Points: Because our experience of interview was not enough, the teachers didn’t know how to record all the processes of interview. By this way, all the members wouldn’t have enough time to record the content of the interview to Master Nian. Therefore, there were some adjustments: 1. Prepare voice record and camera recorder to record. 2. Take the notes first and then write down the details by camera recorder.
