“Throughout my career as a mathematician, l have had so many different classes about Islamic Geometric Pattern but after taking Mr. Aljanabi’s course in IDC, l have comprehended the general principles of these wonderful patterns and have discovered the mathematical backgrounds that these patterns based on. Having finished the course, I am more confident analysing new patterns and even the complex ones. The most I liked of this course is that the lesson pages are well planned and visually explained that make it easy even for intermediate English speakers to follow along.”

“دورة تعليمية تشمل جميع خطوات الطريقة التقليدية في رسم الزخارف الهندسية الإسلامية، من خلال أخذ جميع النظم في الاعتبار لتطوير قدرة الرسم والتحكم في الزخارف و تعطي القدرة لإجراء تحليل رياضي لتلك الزخارف ايضا. وبما أنني فنانة في التذهيب لذلك أستفيد من هذه التصاميم بشكل كبير”
