Expansion of Influence and Educational Endeavors

In addition to her individual creations, Nadere, through teaching and mentoring, has influenced the culture of Iranian art as a whole. This commitment to nurturing nascent talent led her to establish the Art Center Free School of Visual Arts at Rasht. The school is now a central for young artists to hone their skills, grapple with complex notions, and contribute to the vibrant cultural climate within.

The school promotes a comprehensive approach to teaching fine arts, which encourages students to undertake various techniques and media while also developing their critical understanding of art’s role in society.
