Supply ListThis class is an introduction to Square Kufic Calligraphy. Originally created for architecture purposes, this ancient script beautifully simplifies the letter forms into modern angular shapes. Introduction to its history and some basic composition rules will be discussed. Students will be guided through into constructing two different compositions. No need for any prior experience or understanding of the Arabic language is required. If you are a problem-solver, this script is for you!
