Summer 2022 at the Museum of Cycladic Art!
In this year’s summer camp, children will “sneak” into various artists’ workshops, from antiquity to the present day, where they will bring forgotten and contemporary arts to life.
Six five-day camps in June and July (June 20-24, June 27-July 1, July 4-8, July 11-15, July 18-22, and July 25-29) will make this summer super exciting for our young friends!
At the Artist’s Workshop
During this year’s summer camp, children will “sneak” into the workshops of various artists, from ancient to modern times, bringing both long lost and contemporary arts to life. In this journey, they will explore anything from the ancient potters’ workshops to Brice Marden’s studio, from goldsmiths' workbenches to the manuscripts of Chinese calligraphers, and from the figurines of prehistoric Cyclades to present day's artistic jewelry. But this journey does not end there. During these art workshops, even more artistic spaces will come to life, such as those used by dancers in ancient and modern times, actors from Ancient Greece to Japan, as well as ancient and contemporary musicians. Ancient dances will fuse with hip-hop, flute and lyre music will blend with the beat of tin cans and broomsticks, and ancient masks will intertwine with the heads of the Minotaur by Pablo Picasso.
The goal of this year’s summer camp is for children to experiment with different techniques and materials, create their own original works, and participate in the production of a group project. Play, improvisation, and collaboration will be integral components of all activities. We will draw inspiration from the Museum’s permanent collections as well as Brice Marden’s temporary exhibition, which we will visit every day. Day by day, we will gradually set up an exhibition of the children’s artwork that will be presented to their parents on the last day of each cycle. We hope all of our students are ready to play and have a great time!
