924: Art Education supported by Girne Municipality Exhibition at the Limassol Culture House in Girne

By Heidi Trautmann


Not so long ago I had reported on children education activities going on in one of the Girne Municipality buildings near the Wednesday Market… here the link….




Now, the organisers announced the exhibition at the end of the term which took place at the Leymosun Kültür Evi which is situated next to the sports area on the road down to the new harbor.


Parents and kids excitedly waited for the Mayor of Girne, Nidai Güngördü,  and for their teacher to open the exhibition. They have been working hard and with great enthusiasm, as I was witness.


When the reader looks at the photos I have taken during the exhibition you will realize that it is the aim of teaching that there is no limit to the use of materials to create something, to exalt the imagination, to encourage free development and …which is very important….to give fun and excitement, and at the same time to improve cooperation among groups of children; children learn to accept the otherness of the others which is a most important factor in society and the earlier they learn it the better.

I admire the involvement of the teachers, the joy they have with the art education….and it shows. Zehra Sonya is not only the President of EMAA – European Mediterranean Art Association – she is involved in so many art activities that she hardly finds the time for her own work which is sculpting; for the last year she was working on a sculpture project in front of the Amphitheatre of Girne.

Children will always remember this very precious time just as I have never forgotten my first art teachers, they were the first to teach me to learn to see.
