The Qian Kun Language & Arts Center focuses on bringing educational programming in the traditional Chinese arts and Mandarin Chinese language to the Portland community.

Our Language & Arts Center is the branch of the Qian Kun Institute which offers a formal course of study in Mandarin Chinese and instruction in a variety of classical Chinese art forms, such as calligraphy, painting, and playing musical instruments.

Our classes are held at Qian Kun’s facilities in Northwest Portland, which are shared by the U.S. Wushu Center and include the Pearl Court Activity Center.

The cultural events we sponsor are held both at Pearl Court and at other event spaces and galleries throughout the community.
