Ms. Avery and Mrs. Kopecki attended a three day workshop entitled "Tile and Mural Design and Construction" at the Office for the Arts at Harvard over a course of three Saturdays this past January and February.
The course was led by Dr. Wasma'a Chorbachi, an Art History professor at Harvard University and explored a range of mathematical concepts related to tile design using animal, floral or geometric motifs. They learned many new techniques and design skills as they worked on both raw and fired clay tiles.
The course explored construction methods, decorating skills and principles of Asian, Islamic and European design.
Dr Wasma'a Chorbachi has provided them with a wealth of learning and practical knowledge for their unit on Turkey.
