Learn to See at 'Psifida'

Visual literacy is the learned ability to interpret visual messages accurately. A weighty part of the training of artists, seems vital for all everyday environments which are complex, tricky and constantly changing.
Michalis G Kallimopoulos, visual artist and art educator, created the Visual Literacy Workshop Learn to See in 2014. The new Visual Literacy Thematic Seminars are held at the Psifida Cultural Organization.

You can stay informed on the Learn to See project and keep an eye on upcoming workshops here (greek only).
