Want to explore something new? How about painting on water! Ebru is a traditional Turkish paper marbling art of creating colorful patterns and images by sprinkling color pigments on water, then transferring them to paper. The tools are horsehair brushes, metal pins for shaping paints, specially prepared earth pigments and a tray full of water thickened with seaweed powder. The authenticity of the materials creates a mystique that will take you into the 17th century. Colors that we will be using in the workshop are also from the natural colors of masters' palettes. The first part of the class will include training on the technique, followed by hands-on practice of the art, including abstract and flower forms. Students will keep their own unique artworks. All materials are included! Open to all levels. Free parking at AIC parking lot!

Note: The exact location will be disclosed once the host has accepted your request.

My artworks are inspired by nature and the stunning works of prior Ebru masters. Water is the canvas I use when creating my designs with soil-based natural earth pigments. I believe that there is a rhythm in water that resembles our own. Practicing Ebru Art is clearing your mind, with a deep concentration, any thoughts in your mind is disappear. You are feeling so relax, because of the moving colors and water. Even though watching is gives the same effects to watchers. It is an open door to escape from all the conflicts of our life. It pulls you from this world to your inner world to your soul. Traditional arts usually goes by master and apprentice, love and practice.As a self taught artist, from the beginning, "love" was my master. Years after years, I have been practicing by myself and also with my students since 2004. Beside the traditional forms, I am in constant search to find my own contemporary designs from the infinite world of blooming colors on water.
