The panel held as part of the 37th DYO Art Awards Istanbul Exhibition…
As part of the 37th DYO Art Awards Istanbul Exhibition, the panel on “Art Education in Turkey and the Expectations of Young Artists” was attended by curator Denizhan Özer, Prof. Dr. It was held at Galata Greek School with the participation of Tülin Onat and Ekrem Kahraman. Thanking the DYO Painting Competition, the first competition he participated in after his studentship, for the support he has given to art and artists for years, Prof. Dr. Onat said, “If you keep art away from a society, its social values ​​will decrease. Art is not only an aesthetic event, but also a power that unites people. Therefore, the support given to young artists and art education in Turkey should be increased. While saying that oil painting or canvas-based subjects, which are fundamental in art education, are not taught in academies, he continued as follows: “Students studying at the faculty of fine arts in Turkey think they deserve to be artists when they graduate. However, only 5 percent of 1000 people take initiatives for art. When they graduate, they turn into fish out of water. The support of the state, local government and the private sector needs to increase.” Curator Denizhan Özer, who said that art is instilled in individuals in childhood, in European countries, said, “While 16 hours of art education are given in the West, only 1 hour of instruction is given in Turkey. Unfortunately, this class hour is not enough to understand art and discover talents. That’s why we have to prick ourselves first. As people who work for art, we should give the support that young artists expect from us and continue to strive for the development of art education.”
