Art from Nature: Tempera Paint Workshop
DIY Workshop Kit

Pera Kids

Do you know that artists used to manufacture their own paint in the past? Would you like to produce your own paint, and then paint on handmade paper just like them?

In this workshop, we prepare tempera paints from powder pigments used in historical miniatures, as well as eggs. Then using these tempera paints, we draw shapes and patterns on handmade paper produced by recycling. Through this activity, we discover the joy of producing paint from natural materials, and letting our imagination free in our paintings. 

Important Information:
The required materials and the video on stages of production will be delivered by cargo.

Everyone purchasing this workshop will be entitled to participate in the guided online exhibition tour on 26 November 2020 and 24 December 2020 at 17:00. The online guided tours will be in Turkish.

Nam June Paik Video Art’s Pioneer

Nam June Paik Video Art’s Pioneer

Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006). It is interesting that while Warhol and Nameth were experimenting with psychedelic happenings that combined rock, film and performance, the video art pioneers Nam June Paik, Stephen Beck, Eric Siegel and Steina Vasulka were researching in a similar direction.

Transition to Sculpture

Transition to Sculpture

If Manolo Valdés’s paintings convey a search for materiality, his sculpture does so even more. Today, sculpture has taken over most of his workspace, his time, and his efforts.
