Children’s Calligraphy Classes

DCCC introduces a children’s calligraphy class for kids, ages 6-11.

Thomas Yu, a well known calligrapher in Dallas, will be teaching this course for 10 weeks. During this ten-week course, Mr. Yu will teach children basic foundation, from seating posture, brush holding to actually writing. It is a great opportunity for your kids to experience and appreciate calligraph and to increase their enthusiasm to write Chinese characters. Mr. Yu received Chinese calligraphy basic instruction from his great uncle and grandpa at age 7. He also learned from Mr. Yo, a professor at the Arts Institute of Peking and has been practicing ever since. He has lectured at Washington University Chinese Art Festival in St. Louis, MO, Dallas Museum of Art and Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas, Campbell Museum in Fort Worth, as well as SMU, UTD, Richland College, Austin College, Chinese Community Center and many other institutions in the DFW area. $100 for 10 lessons to support DCCC.

Texas Written Drivers License Test Class

This class will start in April and will help students improve their Driver’s Education on a Saturday and Sunday. This two-day course will prepare you for the Written Examination in order to acquire the Learner’s Permit that leads to the Driver’s License.

The course covers seven units from Driver Responsibility to Road Signs, from Right of Way to Defensive Driving. Online test can be taken once the course is complete on the second day. Once you pass the test and receive your certificate, you can go to the Department of Public Safely for the eye exam and road test when you are ready. Registration fee: $100. Online course: $75.

The online course materials will be in English, but we have prepared the Chinese translation with personal assistance by bilingual volunteers. Last year, all participants passed the written test after completing the course. Please contact DCCC at (972) 480-0311 for detail information.

Thank you to State Farm for sponsoring this Driver’s Education course.
