Introduction :

Introduce your kids to a new kind of fun by exploring a variety of words and letters in a unique and expressive way.

 

            In Coolligraphy For Kids, Daniel Nie teaches children how to create expressive pictures of various words using his Coolligraphy style. Learning how to make their own Coolligraphy, children can create and color their own special creations, making it a great art activity for all environments, whether at home or in school.

 

            These beautiful Coolligraphy letters are featured alongside short language learning poems related to each word, so kids have the added bonus of linking 26 different English words to their respective Chinese translations. In other words, you can teach your kids basic Chinese, one of the most in-demand languages for people to learn today, through these artistic activities. But most importantly, children will be able to use their own creative abilities to create their own Coolligraphy artwork based on their personal interpretations of the specific letters that are in each word.

 

            Renowned artist, Daniel Nie, has taken his love of art and teaching children to a higher level. He provides a convenient framework for kids to easily segue through the chapters, and kids and adults alike will appreciate the unique way whereby they can creatively transform these words . . . Coolligraphy style.

Inspirational Words in Coolligraphy by Danie Nie

Published 2009,    Paperback $39.00

plus shipping $6.90.

 This Book makes a great gift for your friends and relatives for all occasions.

About this book

 

The author of this book has collected and divided 30 words of inspiration into three groups that correspond to the primary colors red, yellow, and blue.  In addition, each word is associated with one of the signs of the Chinese zodiac.  The zodiac signs include personality traits and specific life-enhancing words that are unique to those born under each sign.

The symbols of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac are painted in Sumi-e style calligraphy by renowned calligrapher, Daniel Nie.

When you contemplate the 30 poems in this book, you may find that you are inspired by the beautiful Coolligraphy designs of their titles.  Discovering the meaning of these designs is a fun activity that can challenge your visual I.Q.  You will find some Coolligraphy puzzle exercises at the end of this book.  The objective of these exercises is to challenge the eye, stimulate the mind, fulfill the heart, and nurture the soul.

Daniel Nie’s Coolligraphy symbols are distinctive works of art that can add beauty to your home or office.  They can serve as unique logos for anything from letterheads to embroideries, tattoos, and jewelry.

Daniel Nie can also create a custom-made Coolligraphy design pendant for you, using any name or word of your choice.  His pendants make ideal gifts for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, or any special occasion.
