On Weekends… children and parents at the Museum
This year, the Museum’s children’s program draws inspiration from both ancient and modern team games, engaging them in experimentation, learning, and creative activities.
In the workshops, the children become art explorers! They travel through time, discovering the magical treasures of great artists, observing magnificent works of art, and exploring the key periods of contemporary art!
“Roll the dice!”
This month, a special dice will dynamically put us into play. Its instructions must be executed precisely! Who will follow them all the way to the end?
In the first workshop of the year, parents and children will jump, roll, dance, and run under the guidance of this special dice. After we’ve awakened all our muscles, we’ll grab colors, fabrics, yarns, and other materials to create our very own colorful and unique dice. The stencil and collage techniques will be our guides, while the children will practice cutting, gluing, and fingerprinting.
Let’s play and run together!
PS. Both parents and children need to wear casual and comfy clothes and be ready to get messy, as we will definitely get messy!
Led by Developmental Psychologist, Despoina Sakellariou.
Ticket 15€ (for 1 child and 1 parent)
“Cubism. What secrets do Pablo Picasso’s strange portraits hold?”
How many eyes can you spot in a painting? How many mouths and ears does this man actually have? How many geometric shapes can you count? How many colors do you see? And how many emotions do these paintings hide?
In this workshop, we travel back in time to the early 20th century and find ourselves in France, where the Cubism movement first appeared. We’ll admire and explore the paintings of Pablo Picasso as well as Georges Braque’s, who were pioneers of this movement. Then, we’ll create our own ‘crazy’ portraits in bold and vivid colors!
Parents, we can’t wait for you to see our exhibition!
PS.1: Children need to wear casual and comfy clothes and be ready to get messy, as we will definitely get messy!
PS.2: The workshop is intended for unaccompanied children. Parents can only enter the workshop during the presentation at the end of the workshop.
Led by Educators and Museum Educators, Fotini Gkountopoulou and Chrysavgi Georgari
