The Tomato Industrial Museum in Vlychada travels to the magic world of art, together with the children of Santorini. Come with us in a journey through the World Art History, beginning from the ancient world of cave paintings to the contemporary art of our century. Through the 6 workshops, which will take place again this year, we will stop in six different historical periods which enhance human creativity. We are experimenting with different techniques and artistic processes (wall-painting, hand-made objects with recycled materials etc.). We will use different materials (painting with tempera colours, painting with acrylic colours, painting with oil pastels etc.). We are also becoming acquainted, in a way adjusted to children, with the major periods of the World History and of our country , as represented through the anonymous artists and the artistic movements of the great painters.
6th JOURNEY FOR THE CHILDREN AND THEIR PARENTS
Discovering Land Art in Vlychada Beach
The Educational Workshop of the Tomato Industrial Museum will cover the history of Land Art. Travelling with the children of Santorini, we will meet the artists which gave voice to the natural world around us.
In the first part the children will meet, through slides, the works of Land Art artists like Smithson, Long, Christo, Burri, Bosslet etc.
Additionally, together with the children participating in the workshop, we will create a big work of art in Vlychada beach, using a variety of the natural elements of the Thiraic land.
It is necessary for the children participating in this workshop to be accompanied by a parent (or escort), given that it will take place in the beach. The children must wear hats, sunscreen and bring a spade and sand rake.
