Established by a proud partnership with The Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts, London, VM Center for Traditional Arts is a full-time, one-year program that aims to help revive Pakistan’s artistic skills and techniques, and to revitalize the relevance of traditional arts in contemporary Pakistan.
The diploma program seeks to draw out the skills of both aspiring young artists and practicing professionals who are aiming to pursue or enhance a career in the field of art. The Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts seeks to nurture within its students an understanding of the intrinsic, sacred value of the traditional arts.
The culmination of the diploma year is a project of the student’s own design that integrates geometry, design, and craftsmanship. This year the final project work includes carving, ralli, three-dimensional geometry, illuminated paintings, and satrangi tiles.
