Leading Organisation: MUSIC HIGH SCHOOL OF TRIKALA
Title: “Depicting angels in paintings”
Public Exhibition of all the paintings in the environment of Meteora, where a meeting took place between teachers and students from the School Units of the Project. The works of art, the participants and the winners will be announced on the Project website
This meeting was the third in order, with the participation of teachers and students from schools and institutions of Spain, Italy, Portugal, Turkey and Greece.
The Thematic title of the activity was ANGELS - MESSENGERS - CHURCHES. The character of the actions was purely educational - and not strictly artistic - in terms of the way and the process of searching and gathering information for the creation, construction of a visual (and not only) work. The children collaborated with Mr. Elias Kotsiras (painter) and shared thoughts and feelings, created and captured figures of angels and then presented their works.
Students and teachers had also the opportunity to visit two of the most important monasteries of Meteora, and were guided in this unique natural beauty landscape and get to know the life of the monks up close. It is worth mentioning the excellent performance of the traditional choir of the Music School of Trikala in the Monastery of Rousanou, where they sang Byzantine hymns and traditional songs.
Finally, directions and clarifications were given for the organization of the International Scientific Conference to be held in March 2022 in Italy on the topic: "Discovering the roots of European culture through the Art of Music".
