At this year’s Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation Summer Camp, children aged 6 to 11 draw inspiration from the Foundation’s Collection of artworks and discover the nearby neighbourhood, exploring the National Garden, the Panathenaic stadium (Kallimarmaro) and the Athens Conservatoire!

The B&E Goulandris Foundation’s Summer Camp will take place in two independent 5-day series, June 19 to 23 and June 26 to 30 and each series consists of daily multi-disciplinary art workshops as well as visits to nearby venues. Children enjoy a creative journey that gives them the opportunity to get in touch with art; they learn how to express themselves in different ways and discover techniques used by artists represented in the Foundation’s Collection.

All materials used in the Summer Camp are kid-friendly and environment-friendly, in line with sustainability and environmental protection.

All Summer Camp activities are in Greek.

Monday June 19 & 26: On the first day of the Camp, children get to know each other and then they are divided into two age groups, before embarking on their creative journey. They explore the Museum’s surroundings and then the Museum itself, looking for urban landscape features. They seek forms and new techniques with inspiration from Fernand Léger’s Mechanical Element and Jean Hélion’s Blue Composition and, guided by light and fabric, they learn about cubism and abstraction.

Tuesday June 20 & 27: The second day of the Camp is all about sculpture, upcycling and sustainability! Children seek sculpting forms at the National Garden and then at the Museum, where they explore the works of Barbara Hepworth, Jean (Hans) Arp, Alberto Giacometti and Jean Dubuffet. Guided by their senses, they experiment with clay and then make sculptures out of recyclable toys, while learning about upcycling.

Wednesday June 21 & 28: The third day is dedicated to the founders of the Bauhaus School, highlighting the practical issues and the concept of freedom they were so concerned with. Following a visit to the Athens Conservatoire and the Foundation’s Collection, children experiment with new techniques and make their own mobile constructions, guided by music and the works of Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.

Thursday June 22 & 29: On the fourth day, children explore Kallimarmaro and look for urban landscape features, so that they can capture them with the help of photography. Upon their return to the Museum, they process what they have collected, drawing inspiration from the techniques they encounter in the works of Robert Rauschenberg and Jean Fautrier to make their own 2D and 3D constructions.

Friday June 23 & 30: The Camp ends with a tribute to nature! Starting with the works of Nicholas Krushenick and Roy Lichtenstein and then guided by light and shapes that will obey to our own rules, children make their own 3D constructions and learn about screen printing.
