This Month`s Special Guest

Keita Goto

I am an instructor in the art of contemporary calligraphy using Kanji characters, poetry, tanka and haiku. Calligraphy allows me the freedom to express my innermost feelings to the public. Each character that is written has significance to each individual artist. It is my hope while writing with the traditional fude, a calligraphy brush, and thinking about the original meaning of the Japanese kanji characters that people will understand the fun of calligraphy. It is my sincere hope that as many people as possible gain this experience.
