An action for the transmission of the element of the art of Tinian marble art to younger generations, contributing essentially to its preservation, will be completed next weekend. The cultural programme sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Sports, “Seeking the Intangible. From discontinuity to continuity in Tinian marble carving“, was designed in 2022 and is being implemented since the spring of this year with the participation of high school students from Athens and Tinos, as well as adults with a love for the art of our land, in marble sculpture workshops.

The organization was achieved through the cooperation of the Cultural Foundation of Tinos with the Technical College of Tinos, the 1st Laboratory Centre of Athens (Agia Paraskevi) and the marble sculpture workshops of Lorentzos Vidalis, Koussounadis Bros., Nikolaos Desypris and Onoufrios Desypris.

  1. The visit of the students from Tinos and Athens, who took part in the programme, to the Marble Craft Museum, the Tinos Art School and a marble sculpture workshop.
