Qalam for Kids: Penning the Arabic Script
This workshop led by calligrapher Elinor Aishah Holland will introduce children to Arabic script calligraphy. Following a brief tour of the exhibition Treasures of Islamic Manuscript Painting from the Morgan, children will explore the traditional tools used by calligraphers for over a thousand years by writing a word in the Arabic script. They will then decorate that word based on both their imagination and traditional motifs, using historical techniques and art supplies, including gold. Appropriate for ages 612. This workshop is limited to families with children. There is a limit of two adult tickets per family.
Saturday, October 29, 2011, 24 p.m.
Tickets: Adults: $6 for Non-Members; $4 for Members; children $2
