Arabic calligraphy is a traditional art that dates back to the seventh century and is tied to the development of the Arabic script. In our digital age, it is used in typography and type design.


In these lessons, you will learn square Kufic calligraphy, which is one of the oldest calligraphic forms. You will then learn how to build on the rules of square Kufic to design your own typefaces (fonts) and experience the Arabic script as a creative medium.


Prerequisites: Solid grasp of the Arabic script; access to a vector design application, such as Adobe Illustrator. Prior knowledge of vector design is recommended, but the basics of design can be covered in the lessons.


Each lesson is one hour long and conducted via Skype or Google Hangouts.
