Create stunningly beautiful artwork!
This course aims to introduce the student to the basic techniques in Arabic calligraphy.
You will learn how to shape Arabic letters, try your hand at different traditional styles of Arabic calligraphy and experiment in a playful way with the letters to create stunning works of art.
Arabic calligraphy is not only an art but it is also a state of mind. Organising the letters on the paper helps facilitate the organisation of thoughts and puts the calligrapher in a peaceful set of mind. Calligraphy is a mediative activity that teaches focus on detail and patience and helps to refocus.

We are convinced that small course groups increase the learning outcome for our students and therefore limit course group size to max. 12 students. In case of there being less than 5 students signed up for a class, we shorten the course from 10 to 8 weeks, because our experience is that intensive courses with a very small students number (3 or 4) increase learing speed and the course material can be covered in less time. It is however not possible to hold a course with less than 3 students and in this case we calcel the class and refund the course fee.
The course consist of one weekly teaching sessions (3 units á 45 minutes), homework and revision.
Students can expect to invest at least 2 hours weekly outside the classroom for practise and homework. The more time invested the more the learning outcome!
