PAINTING Lessons from Melih

Need a break from the hustle and bustle of tourist life in Istanbul?
Come take an art class with the remarkable Turkish artist Melih!
  • LEARN the secrets of creating the rich patterns of handmade marble paper
  • EXPERIENCE the sensuous flow of Ottoman calligraphy

Melih’s craftmanship (and his impish sense of humor) will put you at ease and give you the rare opportunity to experience Turkish art up close and personal.
Melih’s surrealist and folk art paintings can be seen and purchased at Les Arts Turcs Gallery.

His calligraphy skills are also evident in his beautiful henna tattoos. Henna (known in Ýndia as ‘mehndi’) is a temporary body art that may have originated in Turkey 7,000 years ago! Call for an appointment or drop by Les Arts Turcs to get your vacation henna done
