I wish to share with you the art of my Calligraphy teacher, Professor WONG Wai Cheong 黃維琩教授.

Professor WONG Wai Cheong (1902 – 1993) was a well-known Chinese literature scholar and Calligrapher. Coming from a highly educated family in Shun De (順德), Guang Dong (廣東), Professor Wong graduated from Guangzhou Zhongshan University (中山大學) with double degrees. He was both a lawyer and a certified accountant and he held senior positions in the Guangzhou government. Professor Wong migrated to Hong Kong around the 1950s and taught at various secondary and tertiary education institutions. His contributions to Chinese education were significant. He had publications of his own poems and lecture notes.

  1. 我在聖保羅男女中學讀初中時,每星期有一節書法課,黃維琩老師在班中挑選有潛質的學生參加他的書法班,當年我班只有陳非比同學有幸被選中跟黃老師學習書法。我天資愚純、無書法慧根,以為從此與書法無緣,後來難得在同校任教的蕭老師願意收我為學生,轉個彎成為黃老師的徒孫。
    跟蕭老師學書法時,經常聽到他講述黃老師的逸事,蕭老師經常跑到香港各處,用相機記下黃老師的墨寶,我曾經為老師整理這些相片,有機會欣賞到黃老師的書法。1986年黃老師的鑑古書學社舉辦書法展覽,我仍保留著當時的場刊。
    蕭老師教我寫書法,更重要是教我欣賞書法,還讓我明白到勤可補拙,一個一生受用的學習態度。今次蕭老師整理黃維琩老師的作品上載到網上,並附上作品介紹,對這一番心思和誠意,我非常感動。多謝蕭老師帶給我們一個機會,欣賞到黃維琩老師的書法。

    1. 淑貞同學實在太客氣了。我十分感謝淑貞同學的美言。淑貞同學天資聰敏又十分勤奮好學。在很短的時間便學好隸書及楷書。字如其人,淑貞同學的字體秀麗;作品清雅,充滿書卷氣。淑貞同學熱心教育工作,在香港及英國倫敦作育英材, 桃李滿門, 春風化雨, 誨人不倦。令我十分敬佩。願我們繼續努力,學習書法。
