Fifth day in Izmir

On the last day of our meeting we tried to work on one of the traditional Turkish art “EBRU” or “Marbelling”.   After trying  with one of the Turkish teacher called Gökben, we were able to do our first Ebru Works…

In the evening, we went the special Art Night of our hosting school Izmir Anatolian High School. Students presented their Works on art, dance, music, chorus. The show was amazing.

Fourth day in Izmir

On the 4th day of our meeting we went a very beautiful touristic resort called Çeşme. It’s about 80 km from Izmir city center and famous with its golden sands on the beaches. It’s very popular especially in summer. Normally there are about 40 thousands people living there in winter but in summer time the population becomes about 2 million.

Third day in Izmir

We were in the Space Camp on the third day of our trip. It was surprising for us to hear that there are only two of these Space Camps in the World; one here an done in The United States of America. We were able to learn about how to grow  plants in space, rocket technology, how to work in zero gravity ,  how astronauts get prepared for space, space suits, spaceships and their cockpits. After eating our pizzas for lunch at school, the students from each school presented their Works about art.
