The city of Athens is hosting the 5th Annual Kid & Family Art Festival from March 19 to 21, 2010 at “Technopolis” in Gazi.

The festival is geared toward families with children up to 14 years old, and includes art activities and workshops, theater performance, and a carnival with games, entertainers and a carousel.

Larger than life settings and traditional costumes lure kids of all ages into an enchanted forest with elves and fairies, to be transported to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance with knights and queens and pass through the Ministry of Magic that is full of workshops and activities.

This trip to the world of art will enhance the children’s imagination through art, sculpture and photography exhibitions, and a special graffiti contest. Theatrical performances to commemorate the International Day of Francophonie will be held in collaboration with the French Embassy in Athens.

Parallel events include theatrical performances of “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint Exupéry and the renowned comedies of Moliere combined with an exhibition of 17th century costumes.

Children can also enjoy shadow puppet theatre by L. Vita, puppet shows, parties, facepainting, sports events, magic shows and workshops of music, physical expression, painting, mosaic, mask theatre, photography, story creation, percussion, robotics, health and environmental protection.

The Kid & Family Art Festival aims to give children and adults the enjoyable experience of collective creation and urges them to discover activities that will improve their family relations through education and art.
