Message from the Program Directors

Dear Camp Students and Parents.

“The camp will provide an opportunity for the students to get a first-hand experience of learning the Urdu language as they connect with the Truck Art culture of Pakistan. Our goal is to help equip students with sufficient Urdu language skills to assist them in following instructions in Art classes”.  Talat Awais, Urdu Language Director.

“Truck art represents the dreams, inspirations, the imagination of the artist (in Pakistan) and shows the close bond of the truck owner. This camp ensures daily exposure to creativity and hands-on learning of arts developing a better understanding of arts while developing critical thinking”.  Zahra Ali, IAC Art Director.

“Expose Excellence Youth Program is excited to partner with Indus Arts Council for Summer Art Camp 2022. Our vision of providing a safe environment for youth interaction while promoting positive self-expression is exactly what we wish to achieve with this partnership. We look forward to our youth being immersed in a camp full of cultural art that will expose them to education beyond the classroom.” Juno Okoro, EEYP Program Manager
