Arabic Calligraphy Workshops with Khalid Casado

  • George Washington University 2201 G Street Northwest Washington, DC 20052 United States (map)

When an internationally renowned scholar of Islamic calligraphy comes to DC, RSSA makes sure to host him for classes. After spending seven years in Turkey receiving his Islamic calligraphy diploma (icazet), Khalid Casado lives in Spain and regularly tours internationally for workshops and calligraphy competitions. In accordance with engaging the youth from the previous qawwali concert, the RSSA made sure to have another student org cosponsor his workshops. So during the spring of 2017 when students are filled with stress and deadlines over finals and projects, the Muslim Students Association at the George Washington University offered Islamic calligraphy workshops for meditation and alleviating stress.
