Workshops for Adults

INTERPRETING OUR ART
"Interpreting Our Art" is aimed at cultural associations and adult education groups. The workshop is aimed at developing a number of artistic concepts, giving participants a greater understanding of how to approach and appreciate art for themselves. The workshop is based around four key themes - "The Age of Altarpieces" concentrates on one of the most common modes of sculptural expression in Spain; "Secrets of Painting" focuses on how to appreciate a painting; "Surprising Histories" elucidates the arcane world of iconography and the meaning behind its symbols; "Step by Step" investigates the ceremonies involved in the Easter processions, recreating the historical context and analysing how the significance of certain rituals have changed along with the ideology.

Each workshop is led by a specialist using diverse didactic techniques to encourage active participation from the group in the analysis of selected works. Workshops run Tuesday to Friday during Museum hours. Each group, with a maximum of 20 people, can choose which theme most interests them and book by calling 983 25 03 75 or 983 25 40 83. Alternatively by email on mne@mcu.es.

GETTING TO KNOW US
Getting to Know US ("Para conocernos mejor") is aimed at groups of foreigners or associations supporting immigrant. It aims to give new citizens of Valladolid a solid understanding of our art, history and traditions by using the Museum's collections, with an emphasis on integration and cultural exchange. The workshop comprises of three themes - "El Trabajo del Escultor" is a journey through time to discover the methods used by sculptors; "Se armó el Belén" concentrates on the legends and customs that are reflected in the Nativity Scenes of different countries. The Museum's own Neopolitan Nativity Scene, with more than 600 figures, allows a deep appreciation of the traditions that have spread all over Europe. The third theme is "Esculturas a la calle" which focuses on Valladolid's world-famous Easter procession.
