Folkart Gallery brings a fresh breath of air to Izmir's art circles, and opens its doors to talented children and future artists over the coming months. As part if its social responsibility project, the Gallery will be holding a free painting class for children from kindergarten to 4th grade between June 15 and August 20.
The little painters will learn about painting under the mentorship of painter Hale Gökalpsezer from Izmir, as well as two other instructors. They will also attend discussions with famous guests, and visual presentations and dramas.
"They'll paint as they please"Folkart Chairman Mesut Sancak asserted that Folkart Gallery will be at the service of the arts, not only through exhibitions, but also through education. "Folkart Gallery's art planning included workshops and courses that offer art classes. We prioritized our children, to whom we will entrust our future, for the courses and workshops that will be held during the remaining exhibitions period. During the summer months, the gallery is in the hands of junior artists. They'll paint as they please,” he said. Folkart Gallery’s educational efforts will continue with workshops by world-renowned painters and photographers, Sancak added. Meanwhile, painter Hale Gökalpsezer explained painting as a way to win children's hearts. “We'll show the children to draw their dreams for a better world. Children, our future, will get to experiment with colors freely at a spectacular gallery throughout the summer,” she declared.
Applications for the junior painting class can be made to the Folkart Gallery at Folkart B Kule, Kat 18 between May 25 and June 10.
