2015 Islamic Arts Festival

Islamic Arts Society organized the second Islamic arts festival in Houston on the 14th & 15th of November 2015. The event was an outstanding success and children and adults enjoyed different forms of Islamic arts including calligraphy, Ebru, henna, glass, woodwork, ceramic and paintings. Interactive sessions including demonstration of Ebru, oil painting, calligraphy and storytelling were very popular among children and adults alike. The art festival showcased the art of 30 artists and was visited by over 5000 people. The Arts Festival brought people from diverse cultures, faiths and backgrounds  together for a day of learning, fun and festivity. Many of our brothers and sisters from other faiths attended the festival and appreciated the opportunity to visit our place of worship for the first time.

Here is a sampling of the festivities in the form of a picture collage.
