Saturdays are for Art, Lunch and Play!

After some very successful weekend events last year, the popular Saturday LUNCH & PLAY events return to the St. George Lycabettus Lifestyle Boutique Hotel with art workshops.

The Athens Art Workshops started earlier this month and offer children aged 5-12 years old interactive educational programs and artistically creative workshops allowing kids to cultivate their skills, imagination, and creativity.

We have discussed it often before on this blog, the benefits of introducing kids to art are numerous. Creative arts benefits in early childhood education are expansive, ranging from the physical to the emotional to the mental. But how can the creative arts develop children’s physical ability? Although we more than not take our actions for granted, our ability to move and our coordination comprises gross and fine motor skills, and our skill level in these movements is developed throughout our childhood. Varying types of creative arts activities help children to build up their abilities in both categories of motion. For example, when a child grips and uses a paintbrush, or glues buttons and yarn to paper, he is engaging and advancing his fine motor skills. Childhood utilization of these areas is critical to later adulthood abilities.

The participation fee is 10 euros.

During the workshop, parents can enjoy a delicious lunch buffet with fresh salads, pizza, pasta and a wide range of desserts with stunning views of the Acropolis and the city of Athens all the way down to the Saronic Islands at La Suite Lounge Restaurant on the 6th floor. After the kids finish the workshop they can enjoy some play time in the outdoor playground across from the hotel or discover the posh neighborhood of Kolonaki.
