Shining Pera: Designing Chandeliers

Pera Kids
Ages 7-12

  • July 20, 2024 / 10:30

Have you ever noticed the old-style chandeliers with shiny crystals at the Museum’s Cafe? One of these chandeliers has been taken upstairs to the exhibition floors to be shown at PƎR Reverse, while a completely different light source was used as its replacement. At this workshop, kids who are inspired by the exhibition design a chandelier of Pera Museum. By using transparent papers, paints and the playful interactions of light, the kids get hands-on experience in working with concepts, such as color theory, transparency, and light.

Instructor: Pley Studio
Capacity: 12 people
Duration: 90 minutes
Fee per workshop: 250 TL  

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

French artist Félix Ziem is one of the most original landscape painters of the 19thcentury. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.

Félix Ziem is accepted as one of the well-known artists of the romantic landscape painting, and has been followed closely by art lovers and collectors of all periods since. He had a profound influence on generations of artists after him, and was the first artist whose works were acquired by the Louvre while he was still alive.
