Learn, experience, create through Art and Culture

The proposed workshop offers to the participants the unique opportunity to explore and reveal the island of Cyprus through its Art History and Culture by visiting museums, specific cultural sightseeing attractions and archaeological sites. Through its procedure the participants will achieve an improvement of understanding of creativity expressed through centuries and different cultures, as well as develop their sense of cultural identity and their awareness of current European Art. The idea of the workshop is to support dialogue on European Art by realising the historical contribution every country may have to our current Art and Civilization.

Workshop procedure
The workshop has an experiential character. The participants will be encouraged to get inspired and select information from particular historical art works and contemporary artists as well, in order to realize the connections that may exist between them, plastically and conceptually. For example, the mosaics of the church Panagia Kanakaria of 5th century A.C. and the paintings of impressionists and fauve artists, or the icons and wall paintings of Middle, Late and Post Byzantine art and artists like Roy Lichtenstein and David Hockney. The participants will select visual materials and they can choose to use any technique (e.g. drawing, painting, paper collage) and media (e.g. photography, video) they like. The visual materials will be used as reference to particular artworks and to support the process of creating their own artworks. The different background, idiosigracy and personality of every single participant and their interaction during the procedure may lead to unexpected results.

Ο διοργανωτής του σεμιναρίου έχει άρτιες γνώσεις και την προθυμία για την διδασκαλία της τέχνης και της εφαρμογής της στην εκπαίδευση αλλά και της επιρροής της στην καθημερινή ζωή. Το σεμινάριο συμπεριελάμβανε εκτός από το μάθημα στον χώρο - ατελιέ του, επισκέψεις σε μουσεία τέχνης και σε μονές - θρησκευτικά μνημεία προκειμένου να αναδειχτούν οι προηγούμενες αναφορές στην τέχνη. ΤΟ προτείνω ανεπιφύλαχτα. Κώστας Πιπέρης

I'm very happy to spended my time on this course. Nikos is a great artist and he gave me the opportunity to visit many galleries and museums in Nicosia, and let me understand the culture and the history of Cypro as well. We went also by his car to visit the monasteries of Tholos mounatins, and we tasted also many things of traditional and regional cousine ....!! douring the afternoon we had practical art workshops in his very beautifull and confortable studio, where we shared our experiences and we have done some artwork following his suggestions ....everythings in a clear and calm atmosphere. I would recommend this course... a very nice mix of different kinds of experiences and Nikos is always available to listen the personal needs of partecipants and eventually adjust the programme... thankyou Nikos ... i hope to see you again!!

We had a great time on this course. Nikos gave us an interesting and insightful tour of some of the main galleries and museums in Nicosia as well as a taste of the best local eateries and cafes. We also had a trip to Kiti and Larnaca to examine some of the Byzantine art there. We used all of the things we had learned in the practical art workshops later in the week. The relaxed atmosphere allowed for deep reflection on tbe concepts presented and made for a wonderful experience. I would completely recommend this course and the bonus is that Nicosia, the last remaining divided capital in Europe, acts as a really interesting background. Thank you Nikos for a really great time.

The course was interestesting and well organized. The leader of the course had great ability to adjust the content according the personal preferences of the participants and combine interaction with possibilities for reflection and solitude work. Highly reccomment to anyone willing to experience how history and past still affect how we see the world today and how the contemporary art reflects the surroundings.
