Chinese “Alphabet” for Chinatown Festival

The Chinatown Music and Art Festival in Fresno was a lot of fun. Thank you to everyone who let me show you my Chinese version of the English alphabet. I hope you found writing these 26 Chinese characters a good introduction to Chinese calligraphy. I also hope you will continue learning the grace and beauty of this art form.

If you were at the festival and received a free brush, please take good care of it:

* Don’t forget to soften the brush tip in water before you use it for the first time.

* Be sure to discard the plastic cap.

* Keep the brush clean between uses by holding under running tap water.

* Let the brush air dry.

I enjoyed sharing my love of the Chinese language and art with you. Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm for learning with me.

PRESS RELEASE: Chinese artist and linguist to present hands-on demonstration of Chinese “alphabet” and calligraphy writing at Chinatown Music and Arts Festival
Fun with the Chinese Alphabet
Good Characters, an international Chinese naming and branding company headquartered locally, will present “Fun with the Chinese ‘Alphabet’” at the Chinatown Music and Arts Festival in downtown Fresno on Saturday, September 20. Artist and linguist Andy Chuang will show festival attendees how to write their names with Chinese characters. Visitors will receive complimentary cards displaying the Chinese “alphabet,” a collection of 26 Chinese characters that resemble the letters of the English alphabet. They can try their hand writing their Chinese name on a calligraphy roll with Chinese brush and ink. They can also try using the alphabet card to decipher a message written in Chinese. Those who solve the riddle will win a Chinese calligraphy brush.

Chuang, founder and president of Good Characters, is skilled in the look, the sound, and the meaning of Chinese words. His company specializes in Chinese brand name development.

In addition to Chuang, the Chinatown Music and Arts Festival will feature other artists from around the country, live performances of jazz and blues music, and a barbecue. Sponsored by Chinatown Revitalization Inc., it will be held at the new Fire Department Headquarters, 911 H Street, beginning at 4 pm.

Looks like fun!
I had a busy Saturday as well. My church had the Asian Craft and Food Faire. Women’s Fellowship sold 1200 char siu baus at $1.00 each. Amazing how folks liked the char siu baus and many returned for seconds.
I wish you could have been there. There were many Asian crafts being sold. Your product would have been great at our craft faire.
