The cursive script (sometimes called grass script, cursive hand) is a fully cursive script according to certain rules. With drastic simplifications requiring specialized knowledge; a person who can read the semi-cursive script cannot be expected to read the cursive script without training. Entire characters may be written without lifting the brush from the paper at all, and characters frequently flow into one another. Strokes are modified or eliminated completely to facilitate smooth writing and to create a beautiful, abstract appearance although like irregular. Characters are highly rounded and soft in appearance, with a noticeable lack of angular lines. Due to the drastic simplification and ligature involved, this script is not considered particularly legible to the average person, and thus has never achieved widespread use beyond the realm of literati calligraphers.

Cursive script originated in China during the Han dynasty through Jin Dynasty period, in two phases. First, an early form of cursive developed as a cursory way to write the popular and not yet mature clerical script. Faster ways to write characters developed through four mechanisms: omitting part of a graph, merging strokes together, replacing portions with abbreviated forms (such as one stroke to replace four dots), or modifying stroke styles. This evolution can best be seen on extant bamboo and wooden slats from the period, on which the use of early cursive and immature clerical forms is intermingled. This early form of cursive script, based on clerical script, is now called zhāngcǎo, and variously also termed ancient cursive, draft cursive or clerical cursive in English, to differentiate it from modern cursive (jīncǎo). Modern cursive evolved from this older cursive in the Wei Kingdom to Jin dynasty with influence from the semi-cursive and standard styles. Beside zhāngcǎo and the "modern cursive", there is the "wild cursive" (kuángcǎo) which is even more cursive and illegible. It was developed by Zhang Xu and Huai Su in Tang dynasty.

The most representative works in cursive script: Seventeen Book of Models of Handwriting by Wang Xizhi, Treatise on Calligraphy by Sun Guoting, A Model of Four Ancient Poems by Zhang Xu, Auto-biography by Huai Su.

Sun Guoting (646–691), or Sun Qianli, was a Chinese calligrapher of the early Tang Dynasty, remembered for his cursive calligraphy and his Treatise on Calligraphy (ca. 687). The work was the first important theoretical work on Chinese calligraphy, and has remained important ever since, though only its preface survived. The preface is the only surviving calligraphic work of Sun, therefore it is responsible for both Sun's reputation as an artist and as a theorist. The original handscroll can be seen at the National Palace Museum, in Taipei, Taiwan.

Having survived in its original manuscript, this essay is also a classical work of cursive script. “Among those who were after Wang Xizhi's cursive style during the Tang, Sun was matchless,” praised Mi Fu, one of Four Song Masters.

  孙过庭,字虔文,浙江富阳人;一说作河南陈留人(今河南开封)。生卒年不详,约生于唐太宗贞观时代(627—649)卒于武则天时代
垂拱三年(687)年稍后。孙过庭无疑是书法史上的一位大书法家和理论家,其《书谱》不仅仅是一本可供临摹的书法范本,同时也是一部著名的书法论著。根据本卷自题,为吴郡人,名过庭。出身寒微,迟至不惑之年始出任率府录事参军之职,以性高洁遭谗议而去官。之後,遂专注於书法研究。

 孙过庭专习王羲之草书,笔法精熟,唐代无人能与他相比。《书谱》不仅是一篇文辞优美的书学理论,也是草书艺术的理想典范。卷中融合质朴与妍美书风,运笔中锋侧锋并用,笔锋或藏或露,忽起忽倒,随时都在变化,令人目不暇给。笔势纵横洒脱,达到心手相忘之境。

主讲人李洪智,汉语文字学(含书法)专业博士,副教授。书法师从秦永龙教授。现在围歼师范大学艺术学博士后流动站从事教学、科研工作。在北京师范大学艺术系公共艺术教研室、北京师范大学继续教育学院、北京师范大学书法专业等担任“楷书技法”、“楷书实践”、“草书概论”、“文字学”、“行草书技法”等课程的授课工作。参编有《实用书法教程》等,是教育部人文社会科学研究项目“启功先生书法学研究”的参与人之一,2003年协助导师秦永龙教授编辑了《启功书法丛论》一书。发表学术论文十余篇。
