ART IN THE CLASSROOM. I, ME, MY, WITH ME. ART, IDENTITY AND EDUCATION
Upon completion of the first series of courses focusing on globalized education in language skills, mathematics and the natural environment through art, a cross-cutting theme has been added to this art education program; one that is present at all levels of education: identity.
This axis, of great importance in contemporary art and in life, allows us to gain insight into a number of different creative and research references relating to I and we through visual and plastic experimentation.
The name, the body, the footprint, objects and places, relationships, image or action will be our playing field. By using a dynamic and participatory methodology, we will alternate work with works of art, observation sessions, reflection and debate as well as creative workshops.
The course has been designed as an opportunity to practice teaching methods that will allow us to experience, reflect and generate dynamics adapted to different educational contexts.
The contents I, Me, My, with Me. Art, Identity and Education revolve around a common axis, but they are organized in three independent sessions (which will be given in February, May and November, respectively) so that that the course may be attended in part or in full.
The purpose of this course is to make contact with contemporary art as an educational resource, establish ties between art and the classroom, eliminating myths and prejudice; reflect on the possibilities of globalized education offered by art; develop the ability to observe, find out, create and debate about art; and generate creative dynamics on an individual level among teachers so that they will be able to encourage this in students.
THIS COURSE INTENDED FOR
Teachers of formal education (nursery, Elementary, Jr. High and High School, Vocational school and University), professionals in the field of art education and anyone interested in teaching art; students from the School of Fine Arts and the Education School.
7 and 8 February. I: the Body as a Narrative
8 and 9 May. My: Objects and Places that Define Me
13 and 14 November. With Me: Crossroads, Ties and Other Encounters
