Join esteemed artist Sina Goudarzi to experience the fine art of Persian calligraphy. In this workshop learn about the process of Persian calligraphy first hand, have a conversation with the artist, and try your hand at Persian calligraphy.
A native of Iran, Mr. Goudarzi has been active in the practice, study, and promotion of the art of Persian calligraphy for more 30 years. He graduated from the Iranian School of Calligraphy in Tehran in 1986, and went on to become an official instructor at the school where he later apprenticed with Grand Master Mohammad Ehsaie. Sina moved to the U.S. in 1992, earning a BFA in graphic design from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design and an MA in Arts Politics from the Tisch School for the Arts at NYU. His long-term study has focused on nasta’liq, the dominant style of Islamic calligraphy in Iran, with emphasis on the art of Gholam Reza Isfahani. More recently his research explores the socio-political aspect of calligraphy as a manifestation of cultural identity, and as a medium of resistance in Iran. He currently lives, works, lectures, and teaches in Brooklyn, NY.
