FAQ
Is this course suitable for my kids to take? Of course, the earlier a child starts learning calligraphy, the easier it is to pick up the art. When does this course start and end? Is there a fixed schedule? There is no start and end date to the course, and there is no fixed schedule; this course keeps your busy life schedule in mind and allows you the flexibility to attend the lessons whenever you’d like. Are these live sessions or pre-recorded lessons? These are pre-recorded detailed tutorial videos which you can watch as many times as you’d like. Since this is an 8 week course, will we have access to videos for only 8 weeks? 8 weeks is only a suggested timeframe. As you will have the access to the lessons indefinitely, you can complete the course in 8 months or perhaps 8 years; it is totally up to you. Does the course include supplies used to write calligraphy? No, as this is an online course, there are no supplies provided with the course. However, I teach how to create your own bamboo qalam and suggest brands/types of paper and ink you can purchase from any local art store.
Will watching the videos be sufficient enough to have me write good calligraphy?Watching the videos alone will get you nowhere; watching the videos along with ample practice and completing the weekly homework will have you standing at your own feet by the end of the course. You will be ready to start creating your own calligraphy artwork inshaAllah. Will the instructor mark or grade my work for corrections? This course is designed as a self study guide. However I will be happy to answer any questions or provide guidance.
Would you recommend this course over the book you have published? It’s comparing apples and oranges; both resources have their own benefits. The course will allow you to learn live scripting while the book is a great reference guide for all scaling and measurements. The book also include 2 additional scripts that are not taught as part of the online course: Riq’a and Farsi.
