Creative Décollage: New Artistic Expressions with Color Palettes

Pera Adult

  • June 21, 2024 / 19:00

Can different shades or contrasting colors used in a work convey different meanings and emotions? The workshop revolves around color themes and palettes that achieve a coherent look by bringing various colors together within a certain harmony. Inspired by PƎR Reverse, which transforms the given and opens up space for the speculative, the workshop invites a rediscovery of color palettes' creative uses, stepping outside traditional conventions. Participants use creative painting-collage techniques using color palettes derived from the dominant color textures of Pera Museum. 

Instructor: Arek Qaddra, Berka Beste Kopuz
Capacity: 10 people
Duration: 180 minutes
Fee per workshop: 300 TL

The event will take place at the Pera Museum (face-to-face).
