09 March - 10 November 2018


This cycle of practical courses for teachers proposes the use of contemporary art as a learning tool for the classroom.

The programme is structured around three themes of great importance to formal education (mathematics, narrative and knowledge of the natural environment). It is designed to explore the limits between knowledge areas and invite the teachers to experiment and learn before using these ideas in their classrooms.

Using a dynamic and participatory methodology, there will be visits to the CGAC halls and its surrounding areas; screening of images; sessions of observation, reflection and debate; and workshops on creating and developing teaching initiatives.

Each module is dealt with separately but with a common framework and goals. The participants can study one or all of the modules, depending on whether they have a casual interest in the subjects or they want to study them in depth.


9-10 March

Friday, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This course analyses art as a tool for working with mathematics in line with a globalised idea of education where the limits between the museum and the classroom, and between art and mathematics, tend to blur.

Works of art, our bodies and the buildings that shelter us will be the starting point to experiment with numbers, measures, geometry and space matters. We will work with works of art as a base to learn mathematical concepts and with mathematics as a tool for building images.


1-2 June

Friday, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Reading images—by analysing scenes, facial expression, body language and clothing, and through recognising symbols and attributes—will enable us to take a glimpse into the fascinating world of words and images.

We will address visual, oral and textual narrative as a powerful instrument, both for creating and enjoying art and for the learning process.


9-10 November

Friday, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The relationship between art and nature has been consistent in art history, but present day artists are the ones who are interested in the relationship between humans and the land, who encourage people to think about the assaults suffered by our environment and propose alternative modus operandi.

In this course we will explore processes and techniques to learn to observe, register, plan, intervene, transform, live, conserve and place a value on our environment through art.


The goals of this cycle are to reach out to contemporary art as an educational resource; establish ties between art and the classroom, eliminating myths and prejudices ;reflect on educational practices in the field of art education and its relationship with other knowledge areas; develop the capacity to observe, create and debate around artwork, and generate creative dynamics in teachers so they can subsequently encourage the same among students.


Teachers from formal education (pre-school, primary, secondary, baccalaureate and vocational training courses), art teachers or people interested in art education, students from fine arts or educational sciences.


Friday, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
