About us

Deen Arts Foundation is dedicated to celebrating, transmitting, and preserving the visual and performing Islamic arts. Drawing from the meaning of the term "Deen" in the Islamic context, we aim to bridge the lack of opportunities to understand Islamic Arts from both aesthetic and philosophical perspectives in today’s modern context. Through our classes in Islamic calligraphy, manuscript illumination, and geometric patterns, students are able to study under master artists, mirroring the traditional apprenticeship methodology codified in the Ijazah process. We also provide opportunities for Islamic art appreciation, resources, exhibitions, and collections in order to further engage individuals in the Islamic Arts. Our community is open to a diverse global audience of all cultural backgrounds, faiths, and geographical locations.
