Educational Programs

Every year the Centre of Visual Arts and Research receives thousands of children, and organises various educational programmes and workshops for schools and families. Our basic aim through these programmes is to transform a museum visit into a memorable experience for children and through creativity and fun, travel back in time and in the history of Cyprus from the 18th to the 20th century.

With these programmes we also aim to cultivate in children concepts and values such as acceptance, empathy and mutual understanding.
