Kid-Friendly Painting the Parthenon Activity in Athens

Ancient ruins in Athens
Practice your artistic skills while learning about Ancient Athens by painting the Parthenon, the symbol of Ancient Greece! A kid-friendly and professional painter will take you to Pnyx Hill, a scenic spot with a clear view of this world-renowned monument.

Before painting, you'll learn about the site's history. Ancient Greeks built the Parthenon between 447-432 BCE as a dedication to the Goddess Athena, the protector of Athens. As a feat of Greek architecture, the marble temple contains no straight lines or angles. It also features 46 outer and 19 inner tapered Doric columns.

To sharpen your skills, you'll enjoy a short workshop on drawing and painting techniques. Learn about color combinations, creating perspective, and how to capture the unique architectural components of the Parthenon. Your host will provide all the materials, including a canvas, pencils, brushes, and paints.

Enjoy the view from Pnyx Hill as you create your very own, one-of-a-kind souvenir!
