“I think before teaching anyone how to write, people have to learn how to appreciate it… It’s not just about Chinese characters written in brushes.”
“If you appreciate a film, you don’t necessarily have to know how to produce one. But once you become interested, you will naturally go and learn it on your own initiative
You could also say that reading calligraphy is the closest you can get to hearing music with your eyes.
True, calligraphic letters and pages are very often dressed up with some form of decoration: gold, colour, pattern, pictures, flourishes etc. (More about that elsewhere.)
But this ornamental layer only decorates the underlying FORM.
There is a big difference between a beautiful form and beautiful ornament on top of a form.
Calligraphy is about symbols themselves being beautifully formed and arranged.
So, although calligraphy is a kind of handwriting, and some handwriting is calligraphic in appearance, they are not the same.
It’s the difference between ‘writing as an art form’ and ‘artistic-looking handwriting’.
Calligraphy aims to produce an 'art' reaction, in which a deeper meaning is communicated from artist to viewer, and the viewer feels invited to think a new thought in response.
Handwriting, by contrast, aims to be read.
