“Our 2021 summer semester courses have started. We continue to provide training in 31 branches. Our courses were closed during the pandemic process. We met with our trainees again, we missed each other very much. We started our classes with great love and enthusiasm. We wish you continued health.”
Serap Karaduman said that she has been attending the painting course for 3 years and said, “BELMEK courses are very good, they are very beneficial for us. It's nice to come up with something. I started with pencil drawing, now I switched to dry pencil. We'll go all the way to watercolor, pastel and oil paint. Fatma Ertekin, who stated that they created beautiful works thanks to the training they received in BELMEK courses, said:
“I am very happy that the courses are open. It's nice to produce something. Instead of spending free time at home, we can even produce our children's dowry. We can generate income or we can find the opportunity to make sales.”

I make bedspreads, I also work for my daughter's dowry. He underlined that he misses the courses with the words “We spend our time here instead of sitting idle at home”.
