Howard County Library
Islamic Calligraphy

Art and history come together seamlessly in Arabic calligraphy. Students of both can benefit by learning how the beauty and form of the Arabic letter transcends culture.  As a court-sponsored enterprise and a cottage industry in Islamic societies, calligraphy has long been a highly traditional Islamic art form. It was supported by many related trades and crafts, like paper and ink making.

Elinor A. Holland, of Harmony of Line in New York, offers a fun-filled introduction to this ancient art. Includes slide show and hands-on workshop. Held at the East Columbia Branch (50+ Center) on Tuesday, November 16 from 6 – 8 pm.

Registration is required. Refreshments provided.

Sponsored by Howard County Muslim Council.

Amy Stephens, Howard County Library Glenwood Branch
