Dinosaurs Alive! workshop for ages 7-12 by Ali KarakayaPera Museum

Dinosaurs, extinct for millions of years, are known to have been the strongest animals on earth! We talked about the eating habits of human beings and dinosaurs, the differences in our lifestyles and the conditions they would be in if dinosaurs were still living in the present.

My Stack of Plates workshop for ages 7-12 by İdil TüysüzyanPera Museum

What do we like doing at home? Sleeping, reading, drawing, playing games on the tablet, eating, watching cartoons, spending time with our family… We drew our favorite home activities on plates of various sizes and shapes and we put them together. This way, we expressed our life at home in on a stack of plates!

Giant Buildings workshop for ages 7-12 by Duru DirikPera Museum

What do we feel when we look at high buildings? And what do we feel when we go inside these buildings? Looking out from the top floor, would everything look tiny as an ant? Would the neighborhoods look chaotic, organized, crowded or deserted? Is there a forest or a playground in this area? We designed our dream habitat, a space environmentally sensitive.

Shiny and Colorful Portraits workshop for ages 7-12 by Ada KuyucuPera Museum

Do we really like change? Artist Aytuna Cora says, “Change is both physical and mental.” We grabed an old head-shot of ours and compare it to our current state. We created our abstract portrait from colorful plexiglass. In this workshop, we discovered how to look at ourselves from different angles and learn to be open to new things.

In the summer when the weather is very warm, there is one very important thing we should do: avoid too much sun! Then what could be better than a hand-made hat? In this workshop, with the help of some inspiration from the animal kingdom, we worked with colorful cardboards to design our summer hats, which will protect us from the sun!
