Art and Nature

Hello! This is Karin! We stayed with her in Istanbul. She is Danish. She is a graphic designer and art teacher but her past work includes Turkish restaurant owner and chef in Germany, children's book illustrator and Primary school teacher.
She now runs children's art classes in a studio in the front of her house along the Bosphorus in Istanbul.

Her class ideas are based around Art and Nature. All materials are recycled. She gathers inspiration from her love for animals and nature and is passionate about nurturing children's creative freedom. We were so inspired by what she was doing. Thanks Karin!

This is where old containers are kept and recycled for later projects, it says:
"Don't throw anything away, there is no 'away' "
