I'M A TORONTO BASED ARABIC CALLIGRAPHY MENTOR
I specialize in helping complete beginners in not only mastering the art of calligraphy, but in also accessing their deep inner creativity, in thinking outside the box, in inventing their own visual genre, and in producing a kind of artwork never seen before.
“THULUTH” is a game changing instructional book that aims to teach the art of Arabic Calligraphy in a truly comprehensive and step-wise method. The book looks to synergize traditional techniques of learning the art that have survived the test of time with contemporary learning methods that have proven to develop skills faster than ever. The result is a book that is not only an ultimate road map for absolute beginners but also a timeless guide for experienced calligraphers.
Learn to Write Arabic Calligraphy
This 160 page book is a beginner’s guide to learning Arabic calligraphy.
Apart from the many pages of pure content on the scripting art, the book covers several intangible issues and roadblocks faced by starters and provides ways of overcoming them. Recommended practice routines and tips on staying determined are highlighted to provide help to the beginner.
The book begins its journey by reviewing the astounding roots and evolution of the Arabic script and how the scripts in use today emerged over time. Using a staggered approach, the book begins from the absolute basics - the inidivdual letters. The book does not end at instructions on scripting paired letters and full words, but actually leads students into creating full-blown masterpieces.
