The workshop will involve hands-on drawing and experimentation with various styles and writing techniques. It will introduce the participants to the expressive possibilities of lettering using the Arabic script. The focus will be on creating a word and exploring certain letterforms, a manner of sketching for a potential later extended typeface design project or logotype.

Instruction will include for the advanced level the following:
— Historical presentation on Arabic calligraphic and vernacular styles
— Arabic graphic visual language
— Arabic lettering techniques
— Arabic lettering adaptations
