Presentation of the programs for the 2008-2009 school year

The MACBA's educational programs reach beyond a merely static and aesthetic contemplation of a work of art: they show the student the artist's intention, encouraging reflection and extrapolating the resulting concepts, as well as help them draw parallels with elements from their own worlds. The activities' educational richness will help turn them into something more than "good viewers," planting the seeds of dialogue, idea associations, critical spirit, empathy, and expressive capacity... that and much more, all of which will benefit them immensely throughout their education.

This initiative exists in a variety of formats to encourage participation. Young children and elementary students will be able to take guided tours of the exhibitions or participate in the Expressart- Portable Museum project. Students from secondary and high school can enjoy both guided tours and a specific project: Lectures on a collection.
