Pera Museum aims to educate children in ceramics and tiles.
Istanbul’s Pera Museum has begun hosting education programs that are scheduled to run throughout the summer.
The program “My Gigantic Portrait” will provide children with a chance to visit and compare the portraits of the count and countess of Vergennes in Turkish attire by Antoine de Favray from the “Intersecting Worlds: Ambassadors and Painters” exhibition, as well as the large-scale portraits of Carlos IV and Maria Luisa from the “Goya: Witness of His Time – Engravings and Paintings” exhibition.
Following the exhibition tour, children will be able to create their own large-scale portraits with reference to the figurative works they have seen in the workshop.
In the “Designing My Own Building” program, a workshop on the historic architecture of the Pera Museum, children will get a chance to study the museum and select buildings in the vicinity to create their own drawings.
During the workshop, they will design a building of the future. Those who are interested will have the chance to examine the museum in 3-D on the computer. The museum also aims to educate children in ceramics and tiles with different types of workshops.
