Being able to encourage the creativity of young people is a constant source of joy for all of us working in the Piran Coastal Galleries.The long-term successful cooperation between our institution and the KINDERGARTEN MORNARČEK/ LITTLE SAILOR PIRAN was marked by the completion of the UNESCO project OB MORJU SEM TER TJA/ BY THE SEA, HERE AND THERE, which took place in the kindergarten this school year. The children were discovering and exploring beautiful natural scenery along the hiking trails, while developing a healthy lifestyle. They were actively participating in the protection of nature and were thus developing critical thinking and a positive attitude towards the environment. In the Herman Pečarič Gallery, we presented the art products created within the project to parents and the local community.
