Students of Primary class

On Saturdays of the last four months, children of Class D, E, F, Elementary Schools of Tinos “walked” on paths of art at the Cultural Foundation of Tinos. A series of stand-alone educational meetings, creative activities with a different subject every time, were held on the 1st floor of the Residence. They met different artistic approaches by initially entering the paths of Egyptian civilization, followed by European civilization.

On the occasion of 2018 denoted the HALEPA year, the children met the art of the tragic and humble Tinian sculptor. They talked about the three periods of his life, tried to solve riddles of his works, expressed themselves with their own creations inside the museum space beside the compositions of the artist. In the end, they managed to create a massive board game of knowledge aiming for young and old people to “play” the legend of HALEPA, a peculiar character raving about art.
