for private schools
We have created a new experience that expands cultural conscience and reinforces the school’s proposal to form new generations with a stronger sense of citizenship and sensitivity, promoting their capacity to question the world.
Our main goal is to take more children to museums, and make this experience compelling and rich in learning. With a team of experts in art-education, we have developed an exclusive methodology, aligned with the school curriculum, to orient visits and activities.
In the museums, our educators make questions that encourage the students to reflect on the artworks and movements. These questions have no right or wrong answers, and no particular order; the idea is to amplify the children’s perspectives, and to follow the group’s rhythm and dynamics, as well as the goals of the school curriculum.
The dynamics consists of seizing the visit as a moment of deep growth and reflection, besides offering group exercises-both during the observation of artworks and the custom-made artistic activities.
We work with the main museums in the city of Sao Paulo, such as MASP, Pinacoteca, MIS, MAM, Afro Brasil, Casas das Rosas, OCA, among others - keeping a close, productive relationship with all institutions and their educational departments.
This service is offered to private schools in the city of Sao Paulo, encompassing students between 4 and 12 years-old. For further information, get in touch with us.
“A painting only lives in the eye of the beholder.”
In their art classes, 9 and 10 year-old students were learning about artists who transformed and revolutionized the way to make art, such as Monet, Picasso, and Renoir.
Our itinerary at MASP focused first on the milestone the building represents in architecture, and the arrangement of artworks, idealized by the icon Lina Bo Bardi. Thereafter, following the school curriculum, we began the visit with Renaissance artists, then observed Impressionists and Cubists, until we got to the Brazilian Modernism-making the most of the broad archives of one of the main museums in the country.
Based on this conversation, the students were divided in groups, then asked to pick the artworks they believed to be related to some particular words, thus learning how different art expressions can convey meaning, and represent concepts and feelings.
Finally, we carried out an activity within the museum, creating a collective mural, and debating the importance of each artist and their impact on the arts.
