Discover the Colors of the Planets

School Groups
Middle School

Do you know how many planets are in the solar system? And did you know that Earth is blue, Mars is red, and Venus is brilliant white and yellow? We will craft our own celestial bodies, taking inspiration from artist Hale Tenger's installation of spherical objects that remind of the vacuum of space. We will create the unique colors and round shapes of planets in space on a two-dimensional plane using cardboard, aluminum foil and various colors of paint.

From two portraits of children…

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.
