The Jannis Spyropoulos Museum receives visits each year from students in all classes, from preschoolers to students in higher education. For preschoolers and those just starting school in particular, a suitable infrastructure has been created and an analogous space, provided for a proper selection of exhibits so that the pupils active participation through dialogue and creative endeavours will be the object of these workshops. Becoming acquainted with the work of Jannis Spyropoulos and the processing of the material which is provided is, to begin with, a pleasant experience, which contributes to the children becoming familiar from early on with the world of art and more particularly the magical world of abstraction. The children observe the techniques that the painter used and trace their development, and endeavour to penetrate into and to see the subject, to solve the riddles.
These Educational Programs are directed toward preschoolers and those just starting school and are concerned with subjects related to contemporary pictorial currents (painting and sculpture). During these sessions there is an analysis of the artist's work which is studied each and every time through visual material, slides, videos, catalogues or thematic entities are examined (for example, the animal in 20th century sculpture) and correlations drawn - where it is possible with other images familiar to children (works of other painters, observation of natural images, repeated symbols). Then the children can look at and study the corresponding books in the library. The third stage is the artistic activity of the children themselves, which allows them to assimilate all they have heard and then set down in their own way what they have acquired from the program.
The educational programmes are not operative at the moment while the new building of the Museum is under construction.
