We​ ​live​ ​in​ ​a​ ​moment​ ​in​ ​which​ ​the​ ​visual​ ​language​ ​is​ ​an important​ ​part​ ​of​ ​our​ ​everyday.​ ​We​ ​need​ ​tools​ ​and instruments​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​read,​ ​to​ ​generate​ ​and​ ​to​ ​decode the​ ​images​ ​around​ ​us.​​ ​T​his​ ​project​ ​proposes​ ​a​ ​wider understanding​ ​and​ ​acknowledgment​ ​on​ ​visual​ ​language through​ ​contemporary​ ​art.

Description

The idea is to offer an exclusive programme of summer camps based on two important values: CONTEMPORARY ART through practice and leading by spanish artists and BILINGUALISM, Spanish and English language.

Methodology

– Learning the creative process of the artist from the contemporary artists themselves. Knowledge through a variety of activities, different ways of exploring, investigating, thinking and developing a work of art.

– The use of visual artistic elements such as the light, shadows, composition and colour. The use of mediums such as photography, video, theater, performance and installation.

-We will use the exhibition space as the objective for investigation; the scenography, communication and the curatorial elements. We will give meaning to the creations and think about the different ways to showcase the work.

– The cultural mediation for the workshops will translate the contemporary art praxis to the everyday.
– The use of Spanish language as added value to the learning.

Goals

-Exercise creativity to know our environment in a critical and personal way.
-Learn other forms of personal expression through contemporary art.
-Show different ways of telling our reality.
-Educate artistic sensibility
