We will set off on our journey through this unique art form with theoretical and practical foundations of Arabic calligraphy aesthetics, history and most important tools. Hassan Al-Hajj, Professor of Arabic Calligraphy, will teach us online about two types of fonts that the Arabs used and are still using: Naskh and Thuluth scripts. This will be followed by a practical session in the Library building to practice and apply what has been discussed in the theoretical sessions.
The event will be conducted online via Microsoft Teams.
