Contemporary Art: Learning Generator

in progress

Lead by Marta Berrocal

This course is for teachers of young and elementary-aged children who participated in our Expressart. Portable Museum project, as well as those who will do so, or who are simply interested in the idea. Contemporary Art is not a part of the professor’s curriculum when learning to teach at these levels, which can, in some cases, cause problems. When working with children, a lack of knowledge can lead to doubt, misunderstandings, problems, and vagueness, not to mention insecurity.

According to the Expressart project, Contemporary Art is a magnificent tool for generating all kinds of learning in school, and includes all areas of studies. That is why we think that participating professors should have the opportunity to learn a bit about the genre so that they can feel confident and sure of themselves, so that they can work on different projects with children in the classroom.

This class includes expositive sessions, lessons dedicated to observation and directly working in the Museum’s galleries, dialogue, and reflection, all of which promote the free exchange of ideas and proposals between participants through commentary and the doubts and questions that come up. There will also be a few sessions dedicated to experimentation and creation using the materials and ideas of Contemporary Art.

The course’s specific objectives are:

a) Give participants the information they need to construct a global vision of 20th century Art and its history, emphasizing key ideas that help us to “understand it.”

b) Take an open, flexible, and non-prejudicial look at the different kinds of contemporary art. Facilitate contact with the Works of Art.
c) Give participants the necessary didactic strategies so that they can use Contemporary Art to generate learning in other areas.
d) Optimize teamwork and the exchange of ideas between the assistant professor and participants through dialogue and group reflection.
e) Create a fun and enriching atmosphere.
