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.

The box of Beautiful Things

For children ages 4 to 6

Many, many years ago, in ancient Greece, women used boxes to store their beautiful things. These boxes were usually made by craftsmen who created and decorated them with various designs. They wanted them to look beautiful and also demonstrate that what was inside them was also beautiful.

Let's make our own box!
