The Cultural Organization of the Municipality of Patras announces that from today, Thursday 15 June, pre-registration for children’s and adult classes begins for those who wish to reserve a day and time for participation in the visual arts workshops during the winter season (November 2023 – May 2024).
For information and registration, those interested can contact us daily from Monday to Friday 10:00 – 13:00 at 2610-620724 or by visiting the workshops on the same days and hours at the Old Municipal Hospital at 2 Koryllon Square.
The children’s classes offer a first, methodical and enjoyable acquaintance with the visual arts, through creative engagement with a variety of techniques (painting, ceramics, engraving, construction). Children are introduced to the exciting world of art, as their desire for experimentation and exploration is enhanced through a variety of sensory experiences. Particular attention is paid to their first, but decisive, encounter with works of art from different categories and periods. The curriculum is divided into cycles according to age level:
Infant, (preschoolers, toddlers)
1st grade (1st, 2nd and 3rd grade),
2nd grade (d, e, f, g) ,
third grade (first, second and third grades)
The adult sections (painting, ceramics, Byzantine iconography and art history) offer the opportunity of a specialised and systematic apprenticeship in these areas. They are aimed at those who wish to study in depth specific areas of the visual arts. The focus of study is not only on the mastery of expressive media through the learning of the relevant techniques, but also extends to the exploration of a range of issues associated with them. In this context, teaching creates a general learning framework, but also encourages the development of a personal research attitude.
