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 brand new
Psifida Cultural Organization.

Workshops begin on Sunday 11 and on Tuesday 13th of March. You can see the program and book a place at the workshops
here (greek only).
