Do you know how coffee is grown before it is turned into a beverage and enters our homes? Do you have any guesses? Do you think it is a fruit or a vegetable, or some kind of snack? Coffee is a fruit, and like other fruits, it grows on trees! The fruit of the coffee tree is actually red at first, and it turns into the familiar brown seed after it is roasted.
Coffee was first discovered by Ethiopians who live in Africa, who realized that they could brew it into a delightful beverage. They called this plant the Magic Fruit. If you had a magic fruit, what would it look like? Can you draw it? Use color pens to draw a picture of your magic fruit on paper, and share with everyone what its magical properties would be! Don’t forget to use the #PeraLearning hashtag on social media…

This program is presented especially for the 100th anniversary of the April 23 National Sovereignty and Children’s Day, inspired by Pera Museum's digital exhibitions.
The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
