Art educational program for children 7-12 years at the State Gallery of Contemporary Art – Majestic

Applying contemporary practices of art and museum education, the programme “Saturday Mornings: Fun at the Gallery", which is being implemented for a second year in a row, aims to demonstrate various ways of approaching contemporary artistic creation by children aged 7-12 years.

Through interactive “Artist Talks” and children's interaction with a number of guest contemporary artists and their practice, it seeks to develop artistic literacy and an understanding of the social role of art based on two parameters: viewing/discussing art and producing/creating art. The ultimate aim of the programme is to invest in the experiences, knowledge, skills and attitudes that children will acquire to their growth process and to their development as creative and conscious viewers and producers of art.

The themes of the workshop draw inspiration from the artworks of the permanent exhibition at the State Gallery, as well as the specific artworks and practice of the guest artists. During the workshops, children will get in touch and experiment with a variety of visual techniques, media and materials.

Designed and facilitated by Elena Panagiotou (museum educator) and Panagiotis Andreou (visual artist).

Guest artists in order of implementation of the “Artist Talks”: Georgia Christou, Eleni Odysseos, Annie Khoury, Elena Adamou.

Workshop dates:

  1. Saturday 06.4.2024, 10:00-12:00: Georgia Christou
