Ruhi Lines workshop - IAMA sf

Ruhi Lines Workshop 

In this three hour workshop, participants will learn about spirituality and creativity with Arabic Calligraphy. Arabic calligraphy is seen as divine art and related to God’s word.  Ruhi means spiritual and artist Salma Arastu will use her experience of creating large canvases with flowing lyrical lines to teach this workshop and provide participants with a flavor of classical calligraphy.

In this class, you will practice Arabic Calligraphy with an angled brush and unleash your imagination on paper or canvas. In the first half, you will learn about traditional and contemporary methods of writing and spiritual connection with calligraphy while practicing different groups of letters on paper. The second half of class, you will learn Arabic words and paint them on a small canvas and take home your finished piece!

Where: 1023 Market St. San Francisco, CA
