Schools at the Museum 2013>2014

Primary School

Attività per la Scuola dell'Infanzia e Primaria ai Musei Civici di VeneziaMethodology

The key feature of the programme is the workshops it offers in which, depending on the individual museum, different techniques may be experimented with: artistic, compositive, reading, interpretation of works of art or the forms of the natural world using a scientific-experimental approach.

All suggestions are based on ‘doing’ as a cognitive tool, as an active way of constructing knowledge.

Objectives and skills

• Development of the sense of oneself to acquire awareness of one’s own body, thoughts, emotions and behaviour.
• Approach to the grammar of the visual language to increase creative, aesthetic and expressive skills and, likewise, to provide instruments to communicate with the language of images;
• Understanding of the importance of cultural heritage to recognise the historical evidence present in the territory.
• Contact with naturalistic-scientific knowledge using observation, discussion, and experimentation to teach the ability to recognise via experience and adopt behaviour that is responsible towards natural resources, contributing to the protection of the environment.
All the educational units in the programme have the objective of developing critical, creative and divergent thought thanks to the use of diverse materials, instruments and techniques and the reinforcement of transversal skills of a social nature aimed at encouraging multicultural integration.
