Art from Nature: Tempera Paint Workshop
DIY Workshop Kit

Pera Kids
Ages 7-12

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.

Game of Mangala

Game of Mangala

Three figures in Eastern dress are shown in repose against an exotic landscape, smoking pipes and playing mangala. Inventories of the royal collections from 1739 identify the members of this group as the royal eunuch Matthias and two odalisques. 

At the Order of the Padishah

At the Order of the Padishah

In this piece, Żmurko presents an exotic image of a harem chamber, replete with gleaming fabrics and scattered jewels, as a setting for the statuesquely beautiful body of an odalisque murdered “at the order of the padishah”. 

The Battle of Varna

The Battle of Varna

Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms.
