Pre-Registration for Islamic Illumination Art Course


Pre-Registration for Islamic Illumination Art Course

Islamic art of Illumination Course (I)
Nagihan Seymour

Illumination (tezhip) is derived from Arabic zeheb (gold) and its literal translation is "ornamenting with gold". The art of illumination is traditionally used for the decoration of calligraphy, although it is also used as a standalone art form.

This introductory course starts with an overview of the history and origins of the art and its roots in traditional Islamic manuscript illumination. Students will have the opportunity to learn traditional methods of preparing “murakka” (paper) and gold from gold leaf they will use in their works. 2 different painting techniques of Islamic Illumination “tezhip” and “halkar” will be shown and they will analyse how to design and paint an illuminated shamsa composition, meaning “sun burst” which is a classic Islamic manuscript illumination style incorporating floral design. At the end of the course, students will have two finished projects both in halkar and classical tezhip styles.
