ABOUT THE TEACHER:
The HPA Art Class will be led by Hina Chaudhary, who is an active artist involved with the Islamic Arts Society and has participated in many of its exhibitions, including the latest Islamic Arts Festival held earlier this year.
Hina Chaudhry is a self-taught professional mixed media artist born in Pakistan and raised in Connecticut. At a very young age she discovered a deep love and innate inclination towards the arts. In middle school she was recognized as one of the top young artists in Connecticut; a very prestigious honor. As an adult her love of art emerged in a spiritual form which led to her venturing on to Islamic art and calligraphy.
Using a convergence of centuries old calligraphy styles and modern tools, Hina seeks to create unique and impactful art with a purpose; by giving a portion of proceeds to Islamic charitable causes. In the vast Islamic art genre, Hina’s art can easily be recognized due to its imposing texture, exemplary coloration and meticulous calligraphy. Although she loves exploring different techniques and is dynamic in her approach, her style can be categorized as contemporary with abstract qualities.
Hina’s work has been exhibited at various reputable venues including Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts, Octavia Fields Library, and most recently at Houston City Hall. She loves sharing her passion by teaching Islamic art and calligraphy to students all over the United States. Hina has now established her roots in Houston where she lives with her beautiful, loving and supportive family.
