Activities

Each month, the Educational Programs Department of the Museum of Cycladic Art creates educational materials for children ages 4-6 and 7-10, as well as children with disabilities of all ages.

Art is important for all children. Artistic activities provide opportunities for everyone to express their feelings and aspirations, gain knowledge and trust in themselves, and gain self-confidence and self-esteem.

In the ART FOR ALL section, teachers and parents can find suggested activities for children with learning differences or other challenges. For information about the workshops offered inside and outside of the Museum’s premises, you can visit the relevant page on the Museum’s website.

Beauty is… not only what we can see!...

For children ages 7 to 10

And with the help of magical objects, we reveal our most beautiful selves …

The exhibition hosted by the museum is about beauty in ancient times. We will take images from Art History, shuffle them and make a poster for the exhibition. On the poster, we will write the personality trait that makes us beautiful on the inside, we will glue the “magical” object and compose a new face.
