    ActivArt - Artistic workshops to develop the creativity of European pupils

    The project aims to improve the provision and effectiveness of school education by employing the Bruno Munari® teaching method. This method encourages informal learning where teachers and students are active participants in the teaching process, which is not restricted to the mere transfer of content. By developing creativity under this method, the project will present and disseminate a new way of relating to and getting to know the surrounding world through art and, in particular, through the creative use of various objects viewed differently. Improving the quality of school life by enhancing the role of teachers and trainers is one of the project’s main objectives, as is the inclusion of all those involved in the process from the local authority to the children themselves in an international context of learning, comparing and sharing. The partnership’s approach involves students and their families in school life, with a particular attention to arts and creativity. Main results: • Teacher training activities involved more than 40 teachers from Italy and Spain; • Art Laboratories for pupils involving more than 350 children (from 3 to 10 years old) as players in workshops during the two years of activities; • Seminar and training session on the Bruno Munari® teaching method and exchange visits, to deep the knowledge of each school system with a specific interest for informal learning practices were conducted; • The shooting and post-production of Video, available in dvd and for download on the web site, and photos documenting workshops and artistic outcomes are available for sharing and document this enriching experience; • Communication and dissemination action took place including a visual (logo and printed material), a dedicated web site and a social network page always updated, n.6 newsletter, a dvd including 6 different video filmed in Italy and Spain.
