According to the exhibition organizers, these works fully express the Chinese people's cherishing of family and affection and demonstrate the profoundness of Chinese painting and calligraphy art.

After viewing the exhibition, the international students learned how to write Chinese calligraphy under the guidance of Xue Wenming, president of the Taishan Overseas Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Institute.

The event allowed international students to understand the creation process of calligraphy art, and feel the rich Chinese cultural connotation and artistic charm hidden in painting and calligraphy, said Xue.
