Is writing an art form? Yes! Many cultures around the world consider calligraphy, the art of handwriting, one of the most important forms of artistic expression. Explore beautiful penmanship with activities related to two exhibitions at Mia: “Khatt Islami: Sacred Scripts from Islamic Africa” (https://bit.ly/2UQCDvM) and “20 Dances: Japanese Calligraphy Then and Now” (https://bit.ly/378psw2). Try writing in new alphabets and characters, guided by local artists like Wenwen Liao and Ayan Ahmed. Create noteworthy letters with your fancy script to send to loved ones this season.
Families can also pick up a free Family Day Artist Tote at Mia’s Third Avenue entrance December 12–13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You’ll find materials, like rice paper, scratchboard, and unique brushes, to try your hand at the art of calligraphy. In addition, you’ll also get a specially designed postcard by Wenwen Liao.
On December 13, find the full content, videos, and art-making tutorials here: https://bit.ly/338YfrEOpens in a new tab.
