Ebru painting on a rainy day

On a very rainy spring morning, Berkeley Turkish Students learned how to paint Ebru, the Turkish art of marbling.  This magical art form is done by creating designs and sprinkling color pigments on a tray of water and then transforming this pattern to paper. We thank Meltem Hanim for volunteering her time at our school and teaching our children this magical ancient art form. The beautiful work of our children will be for sale as a part of our school's fundraiser at our children's day festival.
