In this course, you will learn the basics of Arabic calligraphy. Calligraphy carries the true heritage of Islamic culture and art, which started centuries ago.
This type of art developed because of the care and work of the old calligraphers until it reached the perfection of modern times. Arabic letters and the script are works of art based on the golden ratio. No wonder that artists use them to create integrated works of art.
