The work of the Educational Service could overall be defined as that of facilitating contact between the object/exhibition and the lay observer. Provoking a reaction towards the contents of a work of art is as important as the contents of the work themselves. Stimulating enjoyment and a liking for art ought to be part of this experience, thereby helping to establish closer links between the public and the museum.
The orientation of guided tours within a pedagogic framework for
groups: students from all levels of education, teachers, adults, senior
citizens, the disabled, and professional and cultural associations.
Teacher training, during which themes and methodologies are discussed so that in school teachers can prepare their students for a visit to the museum and afterwards make better use of what they have learnt.
Pedagogic workshops for children and adolescents, in which participants examine and experiment creatively with an art technique or theme arising from the exhibition visited. Aimed at primary school groups. Weekend pedagogic workshops, intended for non-school groups of children and adolescents. Their aim is to explore the temporary exhibitions from a fun yet pedagogic perspective.
Themed workshops, developed and held, at the Educational Service’s invitation, by researchers from fields such as literature, art and sociology, based on the temporary exhibitions and approached from the perspective of diversifying ways of looking and perceiving. Aimed at secondary school children.
All the activities mentioned above are scheduled to coincide with the temporary exhibitions and are subject to advance booking by telephone or e-mail.
Extended projects, developed in collaboration with schools from the neighbouring vicinity, and with the participation of teachers and students. The projects are long-term and involve students combining their school studies with art themes that can be researched in the exhibition and museum space.
Supervision and assistance with research projects, both at the theoretical/pedagogical level and with practicals in the field of observation and animation.
Collaboration with schools, participation in debates, forums and lectures at schools and associations interested in learning more about 19th- and 20th-century art.
