Jan. 16 (UPI) -- A group of 400 pre-schoolers in Turkey showed off their creativity by crafting a record-breaking piece of art.

The students from Vilayetler Hizmetler Birligi Kindergarten gathered in Antakya to set the Guinness World Record for the world's largest fabric marbling painting.

Their creation measured more than 164 feet long and 6.5 feet wide and surpassed the previous record of 145 feet by 5 feet, also created in Turkey.

Marbling describes the process of creating an image on the surface of a cellulose solution and transferring it to a piece of fabric.

The hundreds of students worked together to mix bright colors together, creating a vibrant mural.

Organizers from the school said they arranged the event to promote the importance of art education for young kids.
