A Journey into Arabic Calligraphy

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.
