At Kanji Club class we explored a nature and art theme in June, with the phrase 花鳥風月 Kachōfūgetsu (literally flower-bird-wind-moon) about natural beauty and inspiring Japanese aesthetics 💮🐦🌬🌙
Together we looked at nature and arts related kanji and commonly used vocabulary and the fascinating kanji pictorial styles, such as the tensho styles of these kanji characters.
We practiced writing Kanji in standard script, as well as the hiragana and katakana, and in the kanji quiz we had a refresher of characters from the previous months. Blair discussed the meanings of the phrase for this month, showing inspiring examples of suibokuga (also called sumi-e) ink water painting and Japanese crafts and aesthetics.
