Sea of Ink

Soka University

Although you probably didn’t know it, calligraphy is an actual art form. Its artisans even have their own association, in which you can register yourself as a calligraphic artist—or just learn how to be one from any of the workshops listed online. However, it’s not all about the hand-lettering on your wedding invitations or your framed biblical quote on parchment in the kitchen—calligraphers apparently also draw abstract art. It still has that signature, wispy-pen foundation, of course, and all the whimsicality that watered-down ink invites. And because you probably still can’t imagine it, drop by Soka and get enlightened, which is what they do best anyway.
