Schools - Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Esteban Vicente

This project relies on collaboration and exchanges with schools and is adapted to different age groups with different themes. Groups include students from Nursery, Primary, Secondary and Sixth Form Education.

3- to 8-year olds: Word Games
During a tour of the Museum we are able to see letters that compose words but also letters that draw, sculpt, illuminate, invent and construct… works of art whose essence is the word.
In the workshop we play with giving other uses to these letters and converting them into real works of art.

9- to 12-year olds: Words that Imagine
The tour allows us to address the different solutions that each artist has sought in order to compose a work of art, which is designed as much to be looked at as to be read and thought.
Afterwards, in the workshop we present the fascinating world of ‘caligramas’ or drawings with words.

13- to 18-year olds: Imagining with Words
The visit to the exhibition takes on questions such as the evolution of the relation between word and image in artistic creation, the subjectivity of language, the value of ‘other words’ etc. A closer look at a selection of works offers the opportunity to develop the capacity for observation, debate and criticism.
Back in the workshop we put into practice the knowledge acquired in the gallery by creating ‘caligramas’, drawing our visual poems with words.
