Adults - Friday, 5/4 @ 10:30 AM - TGIF Programs - Demo Series - "The Turkish Art of Ebru"

As part of the TGIF Programs Demo Series and in celebration of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library proudly welcomes back local artist, Shaheen J. Rahman, on Friday, May 4 at 10:30 AM.

Shaheen enjoys the water-based medium known as “Ebru”, the ancient Turkish art of paper-marbling. This fascinating technique involves painting on the surface of water using a stylus, as well as combs and rakes. Exquisite patterns can be made with these tools which can include stylized flora and fauna. The painting is then transferred onto paper. Shaheen also likes to incorporate Arabic calligraphy into her Ebru for a wider variety of expression through this medium.
