Art Maker Lab Learning Center


Art Maker Lab Learning Center

December 18, 2018 - March 31, 2020

Istanbul Modern is facilitating the realization of a learning center designed for children and youth with support from the Istanbul Development Agency. Under the Art Maker Lab Learning Center banner, this space invites children and youth to produce art using new technologies.

Art Maker Lab Learning Center is a specially equipped space that focuses on the artwork, the act of making art, creativity, productivity, exploration and the use of technology. Within the museum, this space is reserved for children and built on the foundations of art education. The center aims to support the nurturing of innovative and creative individuals while addressing technology as a customary aspect of life, and to build children’s sensitivity to art by advocating the interpretation of artworks.  

Designed for 7-15 year-olds, Art Maker Lab Learning Center’s educational programs are developed with artists, designers and programmers. These educational programs explore new technologies and forms of artistic production, the changing role of the artist and the impact of technological tools on the process of art throughout the ages.

Art Maker Lab is held every day at 10.00, 11.00, 13.00, and 14.00 for school groups, and on weekends at 11.00, 13.00, and 15.00 for children.

The programs are free of charge and held in Turkish.
