_IID6640

The first day of Turkic Cultural and Food Fair was a school day. Over 1500 students from different ISDs and school systems visited the fair. When student groups arrived at the Turquoise Center, volunteer tour guides welcomed them and walked them through the facility. They first listened to a brief presentation about Turkey in the Ottoman Ballroom. Next, they had a chance to see a variety of art pieces and demonstrations such as clay, calligraphy, ebru (traditional water marbling), wood art, glass and tile work.
