LEARNING AND CREATING WITH CONTEMPORARY ART
2019 Training seminar in collaboration with the 6th Peripheral Center of Educational Planning, Attica

In November 2019, the training seminar Learning and Creating with Contemporary Art was designed and realized in collaboration with the 6th Peripheral Center of Educational Planning, Attica. The seminar aimed in familiarizing teachers with contemporary art and in exploring ways of incorporating it in primary education. Sixty three kindergarten teachers from the Piraeus Region participated.

Intercultural inclusion was the main topic that was explored and approached experientially both through the presentation of a selection of artworks and exhibitions by EMST, and through the art workshop that followed. After they watched and discussed Amin’s story, presented in the EMST interactive program Face Forward …into my home (www.faceforward.gr), the teachers wrote a short script based on his story (http://www.faceforward.gr/en/faces-stories/amin/).

Afterwards, they created and constructed Amin’s character and sets, which were used for the production of a short animated film using the technic of stop motion.
