In these workshop, I will teach the students how to do calligraphy with different Arabic letters and combine them into Farsi words. Then, they did a large calligraphy piece by using those letters in their freestyle. After that, they will put a cardboard frame on their calligraphy piece to pick the best compositions made by letterforms. When they picked their favorite compositions, they cut them out from the main calligraphy piece and then rearranged them into the form of a large coherent composition.
