Iranian Art and Culture Classes at IAS Ferdowsi School of Long Island
For the third year, on April 2, 2016, the Iranian American Society of New York's Ferdowsi School in Long Island began its Iranian art and culture classes. The classes are designed and taught by Ms. Roshanak Keyghobadi, who holds a doctoral degree in Art and Art education from Columbia University, NY.
The classes are offered in six sessions and in each session students are introduced to Iranian art and culture through carefully planned lessons and fun art projects. Since 2014 our students have been introduced to Miniature Painting, Calligraphy, Qalamkar, Tilemaking, Carpet weaving, Pottery, Traditional music, Stories of Shahnameh and Iran’s Geography. On certain occasions, guest artists are invited to class for special demonstrations and to share their knowledge with the students. These guests have included Mr. Majid Khosrowshahain (for calligraphy), Ms. Hengameh Shirazi (for carpet weaving) and Mr. Hedayat Shafeei (for traditional music).
