Arabic Calligraphy, with Elisabeth Mitchell

Create and Make Workshop

Wednesday, October 25th, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Shoreline Center in the Cromwell Room, 

Get your art on with the Create and Make Workshop Series! Wish you could pull up and give way to creative abandon from time to time? Look no further: The Create and Make Workshops are here and are guaranteed to be tons of adult-creative fun!

Arabic calligraphy is more than ten centuries old! Come learn the bare bone basics! Arabic script moves right to left and has different shapes for letters in initial, medial, and final positions. If you are intrigued by its beauty and flow and want to whet your appetite for further practice and study, join us for this introductory session. At the end of the session, you will have had practice with the Arabic alphabet and several words.

Elisabeth (LaylaElis) has drawn and painted all her life. She has traveled widely and has lived in the Sultanate of Oman in the Middle East for nearly six years. Now back in Seattle, Arabic calligraphy continues to flow into her artwork, some of which was shown at the 2017 Shoreline Arts Festival. She has studied Arabic calligraphy with an Omani master calligrapher, Mohammed Qassim Al-Saigh, and his apprentice, Shabib Jamal Al-Balushi. Elisabeth has taught classes through the University of Washington’s Experimental College in oil painting and loves sharing and promoting the production of art and beauty.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday, October 25th, and is held from 6:30 – 8:30pm in the Cromwell Room of the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline, WA.

Tickets are $35 and available at BrownPaperTickets.
