The Department of Educational Programmes, in addition to programmes for schools and children only, also offers educational programmes for adults and families as it emphasizes the importance of ‘lifelong learning’. In this way, anyone who loves any form of art or culture can choose one of the activities on offer and get involved.
The Museum’s art workshops offer a variety of suggestions to adults as to how to spend their leisure time; some of its aims include introducing adults to materials and techniques employed by different artists (painting, engraving, sculpture and more), but also arranging meetings with prominent artists.
There are also art workshops for children and families, while the teaching is undertaken by experienced artists and museum educators. Children of all ages can participate in the educational programmes of the art workshop, with the objective of a. creating their own artworks while using creative materials, and b. developing their insight into the world of art.
The Department of Educational Programmes designs family educational programmes; in this way the Museum becomes a recreational (but at the same time educational) destination in the heart of Nicosia!
Parents can bring their children or children can invite their parents on to a voyage of artistic and cultural discovery. Parents can find further information regarding family education programmes at the Department of Educational Programmes of the Museum.
