Carnival of Dreams

January 7 - February 26, 2023

Pera Learning is organizing various online and face-to-face workshops for children between the ages of 4 to 17 as part of its Carnival of Dreams Program from January 7 to February 26, 2023.

In workshops within the scope of the Paula Rego: The Story of Stories exhibition, the participants adapt traditional fairy tales to our day and design illustrated stories that are means of artistic expression of feelings and thoughts; they create three-dimensional designs such as masks, flowers, and dioramas inspired by the colors and themes that often recur in the artist's palette and works.

Participants learn concepts such as storytelling, sketching, composition in painting, surrealism, magical realism, and abstract/figurative art through the works and artistic practice of Paula Rego.

For online workshops, Participants aged 4-6 are kindly requested to attend the workshops with an adult.

Paula Rego

Paula Rego is a Portuguese/British artist who revolutionised the ways women are represented and is not one to compromise her truths. The Story of Stories shows how Rego authentically confronts oppression, authority, and institutional violence while not being afraid to reveal her own personal nature and socio-political context.

Nudes With Mirrors

Nudes With Mirrors

Although mythological themes are not commonly encountered in Turkish painting, it is possible to see variations of widespread themes such as the Venus at her Toilet. 

History of a Khanjar

History of a Khanjar

Henryk Weyssenhoff, author of landscapes, prints, and illustrations, devoted much of his creative energies to realistic vistas of Belorussia, Lithuania, and Samogitia. A descendant of an ancient noble family which moved east to the newly Polonised Inflanty in the 17th century, the young Henryk was raised to cherish Polish national traditions.

The Search for Form

The Search for Form

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
