I would love to take more workshops with Salman Khattak. It was an amazing experience. The teacher is very kind and makes beginners feel comfortable. He gave me confidence that I can do it. The one day class is not too long. In fact its the right amount of time to cover the material the teacher wanted us to learn.


I'm confident now to take the skills I learned and apply them to my own art work. After taking the two day workshop all my worries were alleviated. I had plenty of one on one time with the instructor. I also recommended the half day course to my younger sister and she took it. She too was very pleased with it. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to be able to take such a course in my own city. I definitely interested in taking any future Arabic calligraphy workshops that may be offered by Pen of Mercy and Salman Khattak.
