HOUSTON - Oct. 23, 2016 - PRLog -- The third Islamic Arts Festival is scheduled for next weekend, the 29th and 30th of October 2016 in Spring, TX. The event will showcase the art of over 40 artists on 10,000 sq. feet area. Enjoy traditional calligraphy, modern Islamic art, children's activities, photo booth, Halal food trucks and much more. There will be live demonstration of calligraphy, Ebru, henna and painting. The event includes a guided tour of the inside of a working mosque. The festival aims to promote cultural understanding between people of all faiths, cultures and background.

The Islamic Arts Society of Houston aims to promote the rich heritage of arts in Islam. An estimated 200,000 Muslims live in the Greater Houston area.  The society organizes events to celebrate our culture and promote the positive image of our community among Houstonians. 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 aim is to introduce the beauty of Islamic art to Houstonians. We organize the Islamic Arts Festival in fall which is attended by over 5000 people every year. The Arts Festival brings people from diverse cultures, faiths and backgrounds together for a day of learning, fun and festivity.

In addition, we hold various arts display events throughout the year and arrange classes on Islamic arts. Our introductory classes on Islamic arts are very popular among young students and adults. We have arranged arts demonstrations at the International Museum Day at Pearl Fincher and at the Asia Festival. Our artists, under the IAS umbrella, have garnered over $25,000 to various charities though art work auctions. We have organized art displays at various public libraries, community centers and interfaith events
