Accompanied by ARUCAD Ceramics Department Lecturer, Mümine Özdemirağ Yağ, the students were given information about career opportunities in the field of ceramics, as well as learning the intricacies of ceramic making and glazing.
The Dean of ARUCAD Design Faculty, who organised the event, Prof. Dr. Burcu Toker made the following statements; “This kind of training is of great importance in terms of integrating children with special education needs into society in their future lives and including them in the employment processes. We believe that similar training and activities that enable children to take part in art should continue to develop. In this regard, it is our responsibility for everyone in society to contribute their best so that our children can have a happier future. First of all, I would like to thank our esteemed Rector Prof. Dr. Asım Vehbi for his sensitivity and support on this matter. I would also like to thank our Instructor, Mümine Özdemirağ Yağ, who provided the training, and everyone who contributed to the event.”
