Turkish tiles

Oh Istanbul…how gorgeous you are! We are having a great time here. Here’s a picture from our day today.

 The art of Turkish tiles and ceramics occupies a place of prominence in the history of Islamic art. Its roots can be traced at least as far back as the Uighurs of the 8th and 9th centuries.

Last week we painted a Turkish tile. I drew a design (found online) on a square of canvas and Nadia colored it.




Here’s the final version. I am very impressed at how pretty it turned out. Good work kiddo!


Getting introduced to the beautiful architecture and intricate, delicate designs at the beautiful blue mosque…what a great exposure for a child.

Have a great week.
