Instructor: Sui-Yung Tung

Sui-Yung Tung was first introduced to Chinese Calligraphy in Hong Kong as a young student. Fascinated by the symbolism and beauty of Chinese characters, she continues her study and practice of Chinese calligraphy in Canada. With her philosophical training at New Acropolis, she is able to explore further the wisdom contained in the art of Chinese Calligraphy. It is her dream to share the timeless teachings of this ancient art with people interested in beauty, harmony and in the development of human values.

In the past few years, she has been invited by a number of event planners to share her talents of Chinese Calligraphy at different venues and events, including The Bay, in support of Canadian Olympic Athletes, Humber College for Graphic Design students, Asian Heritage Month Celebrations, and various private events.
