The art of comics is loved by kids around the world, as an intimate way to express themselves. In this original family workshop, children get an inside look on mythology and comics, have a chance to watch a comic-book artist design a Greek mythology comic and have lots of fun by creating their own heroes and adventures!

This is a Private Tour

Our private tours can be booked as featured or be customized especially for you.

Highlights

  • Learn how a comic is created by a comic book artist – see him work live!
  • Enjoy Greek myths told by a professional storyteller
  • Create your own comic with plenty of demonstration, modeling and help with drawing and writing
  • Have lots of family fun in an inspiring environment – a library dedicated to comic books

What you can expect

Inspired by the Greek mythology, great Gods, heroes and their adventures come alive in a recreation of the stories in a comic’s format!

We all have a story to tell. This unique workshop gives children the opportunity to get creative and seek additional knowledge about the Greek Mythology as they become creators themselves.

First they will meet a comic-book artist and a professional storyteller in a comics library. There they will hear the deeds and adventures of Greek heroes and see them transform into comics before their eyes. Then, they will learn the ropes, the syntax and the grammar of the medium, acquire all the tools they need to become a creator themselves.

And the fun begins. Using all they have learned, the kids - and their parents- will create their own Greek Mythology Comic. They will work on their ideas, create their characters, break down the pages and then they will get to work under the guidance of the comic book artist and the storyteller.

By the end of the activity, they’ll be able to walk out with a story that they have created, and they’ll take a whole new set of skills away with them, too. That’s pretty super!

Testimonials

"We had the best tour guide I have ever met. She was very smart and could have been an actress with her voice and inflections."

Mstahl1830

"Amazing Tour! It exceeded my expectations. Our guide Demetra was wonderful and had an amazing knowledge of history, archaeology and culture; she did a great job highlighting things of importance and interest, while not bogging us down with too much detail. Our tour included a number of cultural stops (wine tasting, icon painting, Greek lesson, tanner and bellmaker visits, stops for local sweets and food, etc.) and every stop added to the richness of our trip. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Alternative Athens and Demetra!!"

Elizabeth B, TripAdvisor

"If anything it was our best experience of our two weeks in Greece. Away from the crowds immersed in a variety of cultures and so many different aspects of Athens. Vassia’s knowledge, teaching and communication skills ... we could have walked all day! This is one tour you shouldn't miss!’"
