The Calligraphy and Oriental Painting Society uses traditional materials and modern teaching methods to deliver an authentic experience in oriental paintings and calligraphy through weekly classes and hands-on workshops. It will provide you with the perfect environment to explore the techniques and history behind oriental art with likeminded people as well as to immerse yourself in the world of creativity.

Our society mainly focuses on Chinese and Japanese ink and wash painting as well as calligraphy of the east. We welcome people of all abilities, culture and interests. You may not understand the characters you are writing, but do not fear! Our professional instructors and we are here to guide you through this exciting learning experience. Being part of this society will not only enable you to learn efficiently, but also allow you to exhibit your amazing works in the annual exhibition during the Imperial Art Week.

We have many connections outside of Imperial College in London making us one of the most authentic University oriental art clubs in the country.
