Ever wonder what is an Aleef made of? This first letter of the Arabic Nasakh alphabet, which precedes the other letters evolves from what is known as “The Perfect Rhombus”. In simpler terms: The Perfect Dot.
So what is the Perfect Dot? Join Us to Find Out!
Come join us at Sembawang Community Centre for the Nasakh Basic Course. Participants will learn the Arabic alphabetic fundamentals of the Classical Nasakh Script, which is one of the important foundations to the other grand classical family scripts. This course comprises important disciplines in the art of crafting letterforms and being a classical calligraphy practitioner. For those who would like to learn how the culture and training of Khat begins, now this is a real good chance. And for those who are attempting a little depth of seriousness, this is definitely the way to follow!
