Journey From Photography to Costume: Costume Workshop

Pera Enabled

  • February 7, 2020 / 18:00

How about changing our appearance with costumes? And how about capturing that moment? In this fun workshop, we will try on various costumes, take photos and get our photos taken. The participants will create costumes with various garments and materials such as wigs, hats, moustaches and cloaks, and pose in front of the camera. We will project onto the photos the emotions created by these costumes by means of facial expressions, and this new character by means of body language. We will enhance our creativity through drama work, and then transfer onto paper the character that we have created and photographed, with colored pencils, paint and recycled materials.

Tuesday, 10:30 - 12:00 and 12:30 - 14:00
Wednesday, 10:30 - 12:00 and 12:30 - 14:00

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.
