Educational Workshop

OCEANARIUM. Discovering amphibious creatures

Single cycle of four workshops for children #OceanFamilies


Ocean Space
Admission fee
Free of charge

Participation is free of charge but places are limited, booking is required at education@ocean-space.org

As part of the 2023 exhibition program "Thus waves come in pairs", curated by Barbara Casavecchia, the Educational Department of Ocean Space is organising four appointments of discovery and play in which children can learn about some of the hybrid inhabitants of the marine world. Starting from the theme of the double that runs through both installations in the exhibition, each appointment will be introduced by a scientist from the CNR ISMAR (Institute of Marine Sciences) followed by a workshop where the participants will be guided in the creation of a fantastic zoomarine using different artistic techniques.

A proposal to acquire new knowledge with an innovative and fun approach.

Who will be the inhabitants of the Oceanarium?

The single-theme workshop series is spread over four dates from May to September 2023 for children aged 3 to 12.
