Children's Health Plein Air Helped Children to Unleash Their Talents

On the occasion of the feast of Saints Cosmas and Damian, honoured for performing a miraculous cure, a Children's Health Plein Air was held on 3rd and 4th July at the Museum of the History of Medicine. The event attracted a great number of participants aged 6-11 years, who unleashed their talent in painting. Little artists had the choice of three health-related topics for their painting.

The first theme was “Painting a Saint Healer”. The children were provided with a variety of icons of saints, and the task was to choose one of them and to redraw it. The second task involved painting Still Life, representing arranged fruits, which are an indispensable part of a healthy diet.The third theme was related to the motto “Movement is Health”, and the children had the opportunity to choose their favourite sport and recreate it on the canvas, depicting a figural composition.

After getting acquainted with who the Saints were and learning about the most important Saints' deeds, all participants embraced the initiative with great enthusiasm.  The children also raised their awareness of healthy lifestyles, hygienic habits and the beneficial effects of sports.

The little participants made a huge effort to create their best paintings for the upcoming exhibition. Each of them exhibited his/her idiosyncrasy, using characteristic colours and compositional arrangement.

The Plein Air ended with an exhibition of paintings, which was opened on 5th June and can be seen until 19th July.
