Landscapes of water from the Arkas collection

We admired and analysed the sea in different  paintings. It’s interesting noticing how the artists’ talent, using different colours and techniques can create many interpretations of water. We also enjoyed producing our own works with different artistic techniques.

Arkas Maritime History Center

  1. We discovered many things, such as; different flags are used to communicate on board and that colors and symbols are very important.
  2. It was interesting to learn, how different parts of the ship are named and what to do in case of danger. It was really exciting to wear a real life jacket.
  3. The scale models of the ships were magical! They were equal to the originals but much smaller!

Arkas Art Center – Anatolian Travels

  1. We put the Ottoman life on stage: sitting at the table like the Ottomans was very different, just as the food and objects.
  2. Anatolia keeps its charm still now. It influences the modern world with its culture and history.
