Kathimerini's GK magazine features an interview with Andreas Dracopoulos and an extensive presentation of the SNFCC - Εικόνα

With Takis’ series of works with magnets and iron filings as our launch pad, and through comprehensible examples and personal experiences, we will awaken the world of our imagination with a magnet. We will follow a sequence of visual art experiments to create our own works of art, while deepening our understanding of the concept of energy flow in nature and in art. A dance of filings and lines will bring to life natural phenomena, magical creatures, stories and, of course, all of our energy to create! 

Up to 23 participants
For children aged 6 to 10 years old 

Session #1

We will make “impetuous designs” with ink, filings and our magnet, and awaken the force of a volcano, a twister or, maybe, the waves of the sea? What will become of this momentum? What will it transform into within our artwork?

Session #2

Playing with the concepts of order and disorder, we will unravel a tangle of filings that flows to the rhythm of our magnet. Dots and lines will help us solve this mystery… How do I unravel the tangle with my pencil? How do I impose creative “order” to creative “disorder”? 

Session #3

With the help of a magic box that contains filings and plenty of imagination, we will breathe life into the magnetic creatures that will appear before our eyes: are their aliens or, perhaps, mysterious insects? Where do they live, what do they eat, what language do they speak?

Session #4

We will make sculptures out of white clay, filings and small magnets. Tree or insect? Or, perhaps, a volcano? No, it’s a flower… Or a stormy cloud watering an exotic plant! 

Design/Implementation: Antigoni Michalakopoulou, Visual Artist/Architect/Educator
