Central Institute of Arts and Crafts

Located within the premises of the Arts Council, Karachi, the Central Institute of Arts and Crafts was established in 1966 by a private body of distinct personalities like Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Nawabzada Wajid, Justice Nana and Salim-uz-Zaman Siddiqui. It's governed by a Board of Directors. It is the citiy's first school that introduced a Design program to cater to the needs of the nascent advertising industry. Now a self-financed concern, the Institute has come a long way since its inception and has been headed from time to time by well known artists of the country like Ali Imam, Rashed Arshed, Masood Kohari, Maqsood Ali and Qudsia Nisar. The Institute offers four-year Diploma courses in Fine Arts, Graphic Design,and Textile Design.
