“Our university’s continuing education center is breaking new ground again. We started our children’s art courses, considering that children’s growth with art will have positive effects on their development process and reflection on society in the future. Our workshops, organized for our children to discover their talents and get to know the areas they are interested in, will contribute to their emotional and physical development. Our children will be the architects of our future, thanks to our activities and workshops for children, which we plan to continue in the coming periods.” said.
