Host Country Studies Trip to the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki
Tuesday, March 13, 2018
On Tuesday the 13th of March, our dedicated Grade 5 students explored the temporary exhibition "Figurines. A Microcosmos of Clay" in the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, and discovered a whole new world created by ancient Greek artists in clay.
“The Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki presents this major exhibition not only for the understanding of technical features, typology and evolution of the stylistic language and repertoire, but also for the exploring of the messages carried by these figures, which arrived to us after having traveled from the depths of time.”
A special “thank you” to the archaeologist Mr. H. Tsougari and his team of Museum Educators for guiding our group and conducting a successful terracotta production workshop.
