Hercules, Achilles, Robin Hood, Albert Einstein, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Harry Potter, Giannis Antetokounmpo. Mythical, epic, historical and fictional characters, personalities of politics, science and sports, are hero-worshiped and become role models and a source of inspiration for mankind.
Why are they described as heroes? Is a hero only someone who demonstrates courage, bravery and self-sacrifice in order to help people, or are our parents, perhaps, heroes too?
In this creative workshop, through short presentations/discussions, children will discover the features of heroic ideals and draw, from their own imagination, mythical, historical, fictional or everyday heroes, following comic book techniques.
In April’s workshop, we will turn our attention to a popular hero, Robin Hood.
Ballads, traditional English tales and dramatic works refer to Robin Hood either as a poor man who was a victim of injustice, or as a companion to Richard I the Lionheart, but always as a generous and charitable man who fought for the rights of the people; a hero loved by the poor and feared by the rulers of Medieval England.
