The Stavros Niarchos Park is travelling

For kindergarten, first-grade to third-grade students

This school year, children will bring the plants of the Stavros Niarchos Park to their own neighbourhoods! Through multisensory games, observation and research, children are introduced to the colours, aromas and textures of the Park and familiarize themselves with different kinds of plants, understanding the process of planting of an urban park, focusing on Mediterranean aromatic plants and getting to know their characteristics! In the end, children choose their favorite fragrant plant from the Park and plant its seeds in origami flowerpots from recycled paper in order to take it back with them to their own neighbourhoods!

Design/Implementation: Kalliopi Koutroumpi, museologist-museum educator
Implementation: Eirini Gozadinou, art educator-animateur

Mondays and Wednesdays (during the first 3 weeks of the month), at 09.00 and 11.00, 90’


Mitumba: Educational program about the visual arts installation “Return to Sender”

For kindergarten and elementary school students

Where are our clothes made? How do they get to us? Where do they travel? Where do they end up when we are done using them? Through creative games, activities and constructions, we discover the answers to the aforementioned questions, approach the concept of sustainability, and become aware of our share of individual responsibility for the future of our planet. Taking our cue from the large-scale outdoor installation “Return to Sender” by the African art collective NEST, we trace a piece of clothing’s long journey, from the country where it was manufactured to, well, the SNFCC, where it ended up in our hands. At the end of the program, we choose among the fabrics left behind for us by the artists who created the installation, and come up with our own artistic creation!

Creating Little Art Books

For Pre-Kindergarten - 1st Grade students

The Canal, one of the most characteristic elements of the SNFCC, functions as a metaphorical continuation of the sea from the coast of Faliro to the Cultural Center. On the occasion of the natural presence of the sea in the space and the continuous flow of water as it enters the SNFCC from the Canal, the children will participate in an artistic workshop with the basic principle of experimentation and creative play with materials, textures and techniques. Through the exploration of gestural painting and the variety of results that arise in combination with collage, they will create their own Little Art Book, as an ode to the Canal.

Design/Implementation: Michalitsa Kozakopoulou, Visual Artist

Fridays at 9.30 and 11.00, 60'


Sports Walks in the Stavros Niarchos Park

For kindergarten and first, second-grade students

Within the context of this program, students, using sports equipment and participating in 5 different games-stations, explore the basic characteristics of movement. They learn what happens to the body when we start walking, running, or even falling down or throwing and catching a ball. In addition, children will learn more about the concept of immobilization, falling, rhythm, twisting and rolling through balance exercises.

The school programs of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center land in the classroom! Discover courses on education, culture and sustainability, specifically designed for each grade level.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) seeks to actively participate in school life and is always looking for new ways to support students and teachers. Thus, the SNFCC Class was created; an educational platform that enables teachers to select integrated school curricula in digital form and implement them in their own classroom, using a projector, or through distance learning, with a shared screen.
