Join CMA teaching artists as we celebrate our annual Pakistani cultural festival! Did you know that Karachi, Pakistan is considered the world capital of Truck Art? Truck Art is a contemporary custom practiced throughout Southeast Asia in which truck owners customize and decorate their vehicles with ornamental patterns, calligraphy and musical embellishments! For this project, young artists will design and create their own tiny decorative trucks using upcycled materials and art supplies.
