Islamic Art

Practiced by 1.9 billion people and on every continent on the globe, Islam is the world’s second largest religion. The unique history and artistic traditions of Islam encompasses fourteen centuries of global history and a multitude of cultures, styles, and artmaking practices, all united by a central faith that celebrates peace, universal community, and appreciation for natural beauty. This rich, multicultural tradition provides an engaging entry point for teachers looking to incorporate the global contributions of Islam and Muslims from around the world into their classroom. This 4-week asynchronous online course investigates the key features of Islamic art, including calligraphy, religious architecture, and musical traditions. Using online resources and readings, expert videos, and interactive discussion forums, you will collaborate to expand your thinking about the history and influence of Islamic art and explore ways to integrate the study of Islamic art into your curriculum.
