Campaign unsuccessfully ended on: 30 Jul,2016
THE ARABIC CALLIGRAPHY IS A VERY ANCIENT ART, DYING WITH THE NOWADAYS TECHNOLOGIES (TABLETS, COMPUTERS, SMART PHONES, ...).
SAVE IT PLEASE!
I am a Lebanese calligrapher with more than 40 professional years in this career.
I worked in newspapers and as a freelancer, then started teaching Arabic calligraphy in schools and gave private lessons.
I HAVE AN IDEA TO LAUNCH A SERIES OF TEACHING BOOKS, WHICH COULD BE AVAILABLE IN THE HANDS OF THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS AS COLORED PRINTED HARD COPIES IN FEW MONTHS.I appreciate contributors' help in funding the cost of this project to become a reality.
The books are 18 in number, as you can see in 1st photo, and each one teaches a certain level of students.
EACH BOOK CONTAINS MANY PAGES, WHERE ARABIC ALPHABETICAL LETTERS ARE VERY WELL DISSECTED, AND EXAMPLES ARE GIVEN SHOWING EACH LETTER HOW TO BE WRITTEN ALONE, AT THE BEGINNING OF A WORD, AT ITS MIDDLE, OR AT ITS END.
THE STUDENT IS GIVEN SPACES TO WRITE SIMILARLY BELOW EACH LINE, PRACTICING BY THIS METHOD HIS HANDWRITING.
The books are guaranteed to help our children and the new age enhancing their handwriting by making it readable for teachers and readers.
This also will save the Arabic calligraphy from facing the final fall out.
Contributors will benefit back from a series of rewards, including teaching books, while funding the project.
1) By contributing in printing these books, you raise the probability of having students access to the right rules of fine handwriting;
2) Project cost: calligrapher work/clichets/A4 papers/cartons/transport/printing;
3) Contributors will be rewarded from the project items as described;
Finally, i highly appreciate from all viewers to share this project everywhere possible, to help it succeed.
