Islamic Arts Society aims to share the rich heritage of arts in Islam.  The society intends to organize events to celebrate our culture and promote the positive image of our community among Muslims and non-Muslims. Art is a common language and binds diverse communities. By promoting Islamic arts we hope to promote mutual understanding and to bring the broader Houston community together. 

 

 

 OUR PROGRAMS

Islamic Arts Festival: Our flagship event in fall every year that attracts over 5000 people. The Festival brings people from diverse cultures, faiths and backgrounds together for a day of learning, fun and festivity.

Islamic Arts Day: A fun filled, family oriented education day for introduction to Islamic Arts that is popular among children as well as adults

Islamic Art Classes: A weekend art class during the summer and spring break for the more serious learner who wants some hands on practice on learning Islamic arts. We teach painting, calligraphy, woodwork & ceramics.

Art Display: We organize Islamic Art display events in art galleries, libraries and museums. Our travelling display of Islamic Arts is an excellent source of cultural education and entertainment.

Art Demonstration: Our live art demonstrations bring color and creativity to your events. Our interactive sessions on Calligraphy, henna, Ebru & Live paintings are very popular and provide good source of entertainment and education.

Outreach Events: We are proud to partner with nonprofit organizations, schools, libraries, churches and mosques for cultural and educational activities pertaining to Islamic Arts. We can provide art exhibits, live art demonstrations or art pieces for charity auctions depending upon your needs.
