Art School in Istanbul; Caferaga Medresesi:  This is a place we stumbled into that is a state sponsored college that emphasizes keeping alive the traditional Turkish arts.  Tuition is pretty minimal and is also available to foreigners.   Quite a fun afternoon watching students create work, and then we relaxed with soup & tea  in their outdoor cafe.
