ART IN THE CLASSROOM. STANDING UP: LEARNING THROUGH THREE-DIMENSIONAL CREATION
Online format: Friday, 5 May from 6 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. and Saturday, 6 May from 10 a.m. to 2.30 p.m.
Drawing, painting and collage form part of the daily activities of an art classroom at any stage of education, but creating 3D projects is less commonplace. For this reason, in 2023, the art education course Art in the Classroom will focus on three-dimensional creations.
Sculpture and installation are part of our artistic heritage, have a major presence in museums and other exhibition spaces, fit in naturally with children’s manual activities, make it possible to work horizontally across different areas of knowledge, contribute towards building creativity in solving challenges, and are part of the school curriculum.
This course provides a hands-on exploration of elements such as the contributions of contemporary sculpture and installation to the current art scene, materials and procedures involved in sculpture, the step from two to three dimensions, and the fabrication and design processes for creating in space. Teachers will be able to observe, reflect and experiment through art before taking their proposals to the classroom, living the experience and making it a starting point for designing their programmes.
Gael Zamora Lacasta has a degree in art history and primary education. She teaches in the Department of Musical, Artistic and Physical Expression Education at the Faculty of Education of Segovia of the Universidad de Valladolid. She also works as art teacher and has extensive experience in museums for students of all ages from formal and non-formal education. She has experience coordinating and giving courses for teachers on creativity, educational resources and art in the CGAC, the Esteban Vicente Museum of Contemporary Art, the Palacio Quintanar Arts and Design Centre, the Lázaro Galdiano Museum, Complutense University of Madrid, the University of Valladolid, Autonomous University of Madrid, the pedagogical renewal movement Acción Educativa and the teacher training centres of Segovia, Ávila, Soria, Madrid and Cuenca.
The goals of this course are to experience contemporary art and its possibilities as an educational resource; develop the capacity to observe, interpret and create three-dimensional works; explore materials, resources and processes that encourage globalised learning through art, generating creative dynamics in art-education professionals so that they, in turn, can encourage them in their students.
