Teachers' Resource: Exploring Calligraphy Through the Jameel Gallery of Islamic Art

This lesson from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London examines the use of calligraphy in Islamic art. The lesson uses readings and visual examples to explore style in art from the Middle East. Although the lesson plan includes a visit to the Victoria & Albert Museum, the lesson can be adapted without the visit and/or may include a "virtual" tour using the museum's website.
