By Sughra Hussainy
Examine Eastern traditions as you discover calligraphy’s connection to language, literary arts, and religion. Sughra Hussainy, a graduate of Turquoise Mountain Institute in Kabul, Afghanistan, teaches traditional elements of Persian and Arabic calligraphy, with verses by Rumi and from the Quran providing the inspiration for artwork. Both texts were part of her life growing up and living in Afghanistan, and they influence her calligraphic art.
