The Department of Diaspora and Intercultural Education in Greece announces an international students' contest with the topic: "Routes of Light- El Greco"
Students of Greek Schools abroad can follow El Greco's route from Greece to Italy and Spain, and discover the influence of light as well as it's transformation in his work.
Then, students of all stages are asked to create a piece of art (any mode they find most appropriate i.e painting, sculpture, photography, poetry, music, literature e.t.c.) expressing the impact of El Greco's work on themselves.
The main goal is for students to be familiarised with the use of "light" in his work and realize the social and artistic influence of every country he visited.
Students can participate either individually or in groups and should be conducted within the school class and not in the form of homework. Students' work signed with their names should be submitted to the school's Principal until Friday the 9th of May 2014, and must be accompanied by their school's details (name, postal address, telepnone).
