Islamic geometry is an art form that is full of cosmological symbolism. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to how geometric pattern expresses the coming together of heaven and earth. Participants will be guided through constructions of patterns using compasses and straight edge and will begin to see the infinity of creative possibilities within this art form.
Dr. Lisa DeLong is an artist and educator who now works for The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in London and manages many of their international Outreach programs. She has taught courses in the art of Islamic geometry in many parts of the world including Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Syria, Egypt, and Malaysia. Her paintings are in the collections of HH President Sheikh Khalifa in Zayed al Nahyan, HRH The Prince of Wales, and she has completed a private commission for HM Queen Elizabeth II.
