In the frame of the cultural program “Europe Grand Central” and in collaboration with “Eleusis 2021” a unique encounter took place at the Special Vocational High School of Eleusina.
“Workshop Green Planet”: a visual arts workshop
Adi Atassi a Syrian visual artist and Khaldoon Daoud a Jordan visual artist were invited to workshop and create together with the children. From this workshop, the outcome was a piece of art on borders titled: ”Green planet” that was created by the two artists in collaboration with the children.
On a white canvas that was split with “borders” marked with a tape beforehand, the artists invited the children to color a colorful borderless world. Then, the tapes were removed revealing borders anew. The two artists reworked the painting of the children.
