Thursday, March 8


Central Queens Y, 67-09 108th Street, Queens, NY 11375


Ebru, a decorative paper art, is one of the oldest Turkish arts. Where or when it started remains a mystery. Patterns are formed with color on the surface of the water and then transferred to paper. Come watch and enjoy trying your hand at it. Each painting is unique and it is never possible to achieve the same design. Mustafa Yasar is a water marbling (ebru) artist living in New York. He has taught and demonstrated his work in colleges, libraries, and cultural centers, and his work can be found in public and private collections in the U.S. and abroad.

Registration is required.

$15, including materials fees.
