VERILY, WITHIN THE CRAFTS OF OUR HANDS, WE SEEK TO UNDERSTAND OUR TRUE SELF.
WHAT IS ACAC?
As-Souq Arabic Academy has been working hand-in-hand with Faddho for a while now, which we have collaborated together in variety of courses and programmes. Apart from looking into the world of language, upholding and preserving the arts and culture of the Arabic world has taken into our concerns. And so, we decided to form and launch the ACAC, knownly as As-Souq Calligraphy and Arts Circle.
ACAC is a special club formed to provide space for practising of Arabic calligraphy and arts. This club would love to invite all calligraphy students of As-Souq to join this space where one can practice Arabic calligraphy and arts with the assistance of our facilitators. We also would like to extend our welcome to any Arabic art enthusiasts and practitioners, or even those who are totally new to As-Souq and our programmes. All are welcome to join!
What do you do at ACAC?
ACAC is opened every Saturday from 2-6pm. At a span of 4 hours, members of ACAC can come at their own time and schedule within the duration. Our facilitators will be around to provide non-regulated art assignments, practices, guidances and sharing sessions. Apart from this, you can choose to practise your own calligraphy craft and art, exchange experiences with friends, or use this time and space to explore and develop your artistic crafts and skills, at your own pace and comfort. It’s studio hours every Saturday!
ACAC does not provide any materials for its members. Exercises may be provided upon facilitators’ discretion. Please bring your own art and craft equipment, tools and materials for your own practice. Decide your own work, it’s all free an easy.
What you must avoid at ACAC?
Aligned with the vision of As-Souq Arabic Academy, at ACAC we are determined to uphold the world of Arabic calligraphy, arts and culture. We wish to maintain all our artistic practices and values to evolve around the Arabic world. Therefore we truly appreciate if all our club members will give their full cooperation and contribution to enjoy the vision together.
While this circle may contain certain degrees of maturity and profound materials, we discourage accompanying of children below 15 for parents who are attending our club. As this club is intended for adult individuals, we truly appreciate a homely and respectful share of space with one another.
