Thank You for Your Participation in Fun with the Chinese Alphabet

Chinese Alphabet for Chinatown Festival

The Chinatown Music and Art Festival in Fresno was a lot of fun. Thank you to everyone who let me show you my Chinese version of the English alphabet. I hope you found writing these 26 Chinese characters a good introduction to Chinese calligraphy. I also hope you will continue learning the grace and beauty of this art form.

PRESS RELEASE: Chinese artist and linguist to present hands-on demonstration of Chinese “alphabet” and calligraphy writing at Chinatown Music and Arts Festival

Good Characters, an international Chinese naming and branding company headquartered locally, will present “Fun with the Chinese ‘Alphabet’” at the Chinatown Music and Arts Festival in downtown Fresno on Saturday, September 20. Artist and linguist Andy Chuang will show festival attendees how to write their names with Chinese characters. Visitors will receive complimentary cards displaying the Chinese “alphabet,” a collection of 26 Chinese characters that resemble the letters of the English alphabet. They can try their hand writing their Chinese name on a calligraphy roll with Chinese brush and ink. They can also try using the alphabet card to decipher a message written in Chinese. Those who solve the riddle will win a Chinese calligraphy brush.

Chuang, founder and president of Good Characters, is skilled in the look, the sound, and the meaning of Chinese words. His company specializes in Chinese brand name development.

In addition to Chuang, the Chinatown Music and Arts Festival will feature other artists from around the country, live performances of jazz and blues music, and a barbecue.
