Edited by Maryam D. Ekhtiar and Claire Moore

Art of the Islamic World is designed to support K12 classroom lessons on visual arts, English language arts, world history, geometry, and science by incorporating fascinating and illuminating works of art. Awareness of the global community is particularly essential in the current era of social, economic, and political change, and this guide is an invaluable tool that provides insight into the complexity and diversity of Islamic regions and cultures.

The featured works, all from the Metropolitan Museum's collection, date from the seventh through the nineteenth century and represent a wide range of media, including painting, calligraphy, ceramics, glass, metalwork, lacquer, and textiles. Each of the guide's seven thematic units and sub-chapters features an introduction, detailed descriptions of the works of art, maps, further resources, and a dynamic lesson plan designed by teachers, museum educators, and curators to align with the National and Common Core State Standards.

These educational materials are made possible by The Olayan Group.

Additional support is provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
