Integration

We are dedicated to promoting a broad-based, interdisciplinary approach to East Asian calligraphy education. Critical to this approach is effective integration of calligraphic theory, practice, and pedagogy in meaningful humanistic, sociocultural, and scientific contexts.

Innovation

We are committed to developing new and creative theories, methods, materials, and means of research, teaching and learning in East Asian calligraphy in the digital age.

Inclusiveness

We are open to engaging a diverse audience interested in East Asian calligraphy and related subjects. Potential topics of discourses include but are not limited to traditional and modern visual arts that employ writing, linguistic and cultural studies pertinent to writing systems, as well as comparative research on calligraphic traditions and practices in East Asia and other regions and cultures.

American Society of Shufa Calligraphy Education, Inc. (ASSCE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs and interests of educators, researchers, practitioners, students and enthusiasts in East Asian calligraphy in and beyond North America.

About Shufa Calligraphy

書法

“Shufa” (“writing methods”) is the Chinese term for which “calligraphy” is the nearest but inexact equivalent. Shufa is the traditional means of writing characters by brush and ink which comprises the standard for Chinese letterforms (or the equivalent). All standards for forms and styles originate from the specific hand of known masters, in contrast to Roman-letter calligraphy for which the standard derives from ancient Roman inscriptions.

American Society Of Sufa Education

Originally established as a special interest group of the Chinese Language Teachers Association (http://clta-us.org/), ASSCE promotes international efforts at shufa calligraphy education.
