Contemporary Artists and Environment
Ai Weiwei
Saturday, December 4, 11:00-13:00, Sunday, December 5, 11:30-13:30

For Ai Weiwei, sunflower seeds are a relaxing snack people share with friends, the same way they do with feelings and dreams. It comes from a flower that is always turned toward the sun, a symbol of unity, hope, and warmth. The result? The creation of mounds made out of a hundred thousand naturally grown sunflower seeds.

Join us to share some sunflower seeds!

Let’s create our own mounds that, deep down, would love to be sunflower seeds!

This workshop will start with a short introduction to the works of the artist and a detailed description of the work of art Sunflower Seeds.

Following that, we will construct our own mounds from clay and will cover them with sunflower seeds.

P.S.: Children and parents, please feel free to wear comfortable and casual clothing and be prepared to get messy, as we will get messy! 

Contemporary Artists and the Environment
A snowstorm is coming to the Museum!
Saturday, December 11, 11:00-13:00, Saturday, December 18, 11:00-13:00

In this workshop, we will create a kinetic winter landscape and will hear the melody of snow as our snowflakes balance!

According to Alexander Calder, his works of art are kinetic sculptures that urge you to follow them and hear their “melody.” Based on his work titled Snow Flurry I (1948), we will create our own kinetic sculptures, reminiscing about a real snowstorm and filling the Museum with holiday magic!

P.S.: Children and parents, please feel free to wear comfortable and casual clothing and be prepared to get messy, as we will get messy! 

The workshop is held without parental accompaniment, in Greek, but can also be attended by English-speaking children.
