Discovering the World of Visual Arts, inspired by the work of Jannis Psychopedis
In dialogue with the Jannis Psychopedis exhibition and focusing on painting as a means for expressing personal ideas and forms, participants will experiment with different techniques and try their hand on a variety of art media and everyday materials.
In November, they find inspiration in Odysseus Elytis’s poem The Monogram and try their hand at pyrography, an age-old method of decorating materials, mainly wood. Using fire, rather than ink, they produce their preferred design on wood employing electrical pyrography tools.
Preceded by a guided tour to the exhibition.
