Arabic calligraphy in Arabic Nyhet
“I have strived to reach the highest levels of artistic mastery, but I found that Arabic Calligraphy was there ages before I was.” — Pablo Picasso
Course contentLearning Arabic Calligraphy requires patience, constant practice and taking care of your tools. The scale of letters is based on the nuqta (point), which is the basic unit of the letter structure.
You will start the course with a general presentation of the different types of scripts and tools. Then you move on to learn an easy script, for you to get comfortable with using the pen and to learn how to dip the pen in the inkwell.
The first script you will learn is Diwani script, as it is characterised by its delicate, slender strokes. Having passed the individual letters successfully, you will move to next levels and writing connected letters, then writing full sentences, and finally writing successive lines.
After passing Diwani script you will move to the script of Nash and Thuluth. This is the traditional approach of Shawki Efendi.
