Support Art for Children
Art has a vital role to play in our collective effort to rise to the social and ecological challenges of our time. It begins with something as simple as reminding us how to pay attention. With this in mind we are creating the Artist Residency Children’s Workshop.
Over four weekly sessions children will explore Spetses and learn different painting techniques to communicate their observational experience of the living environment onto canvas. Through sustained attention to detail, colour, texture and the feeling they inspire, the hope is to awaken a sense of wonder and appreciation of place but also to create more intimate relationships with the living landscape and broaden our understanding of community to include it.
