Beside art and dance classes and workshop, studio recordings are made and concerts with well known Pakistani classical and folk artists are held. “Lahore Chitrkar attaches great value to awareness of our cultura l heritage as a part of art training. Tradition is valued not as convention and formula but as an artistic response structured in a local body of expressions and forms. This artistic heritage provides a formal reference and standard for further exploration and artistic innovation.”
