LaRa – RavennAntica Workshops


Workshops in the historical centre of Ravenna

These workshops are organised inside the Museum Tamo of Ravenna, which is the Museum dedicated to the mosaic art.
Workshops , especially dedicated to children and students, are hosted in two big rooms completely equiped to accomodate people, also more than one student’s class and to realize interesting workshops.
Our workshops try to develop and stimulate the autonomy and critical sense in children working on the active involvement and the stimulation of their creativity.
Our museum-educators work on the stimulation of children’s curiosity: they should try to explore the reality of art not only by looking at the art with the eyes but also using all the five senses.
Educators use a specific language but, in the meanwhile, a language that childred can easily understand. In this way, they begin to learn how art works.
Children can learn to interpretate the reality touching the art, but also they begin to learn the history of their town.
These workshops are dedicated to children, especially to students from 4-5 years old to High school.
All the handmade products will be the result of an hard work of research and knowledge. Everyone brings home his own product.
