The Dot Expands

The Perfect Dot expands into lines and contract within lines. How is that? Well, the movement of a pen’s nib maneuvers with micro repetitions of ink marks to form a visual character or symbol which is what we read it as a letter. 


And so, our registration date extends! Join us this November!

Yes, Sembawang Community Centre has extended its registration date for the Nasakh Basic Course. And we are trying our best to extend this opportunity as much can be.

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!
