My Students

My students are a group of lovely young adults, with the passion to learn about the Turkish culture and language. I try to expand their knowledge about the Turkish culture by including different art lessons in class, which allow them to acquire a new point of view of the Turkish community. Students enjoy listening to different songs in Turkish, which has allowed them to learn more than 10 Turkish songs by memory this year. I also like to finish lessons by allowing students to test and practice their listening comprehension when watching different popular films in Turkish. My students are quickly growing and grasping a firm understanding of the Turkish language, culture, and communities. Due to our demographic, Turkish is not supported as much as other languages, and so I love to make my class interesting and very memorable for students and even parents. Because most of my students come from low-income families, I often have to find very low-cost ways to complete projects. This, in turn, affects the quality and in-depth of projects.

My Project

Marbling is an incredibly user-friendly art form. I want my students to step into the different culture by following the art path. My students love to experience cultural activity such as singing, folk dancing, painting etc. And I want to introduce them with incredible Turkish Art water marbling. Water marbling is an art that every piece is truly a unique piece of art, never to be replicated again. Each marbled paper is as individual and specific as you are in that very moment. Which means you can let go of expectations, let go of perfection, and simply enjoy the moment. It is an incredibly freeing and forgiving art form allowing you to experiment with new colors, new patterns, new designs, new directions...over and over again in a single marbling session. Or you can sink into refining a pattern or design and still end up with new inspiration every time because each marbled paper emerges from the marbling tank with its own personality. I want each of my students to get a chance to try this with your help. Students will need trays and paint in order to complete these beautiful pieces of art.
