Education Services

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.

Activities

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 t

WORKSHOPS

Title: Discover the Differences

Advisor: Vanessa Marques 

Synopsis: Animals and humans: two species so different, yet so alike. Starting from the premise that the barriers that separate us from animals do not make us superior beings, nor of more value,

we propose two mornings in which, through body expression exercises, with theguidance of Vanessa Marques, we will sensitize and awaken the youngest to everything that brings the two species together – from the way of acting, of showing affection, to the way of communicating.

Dates: 5th and 19th of June

Time: 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

Price per registration: €15 per child

Note: Activity subject to prior registration and payment.


Title: Animals and Their Feelings

Advisor: Mariana Galvão and Karol

Synopsis: The goal is to inspire children to value interactions between animals and humans, through art and interactive activities, providing a pleasant experience for the youngest.

The activity is divided into three parts: the first part refers to the awareness of animals as sentient living beings, just like us humans. The second part focuses on the discovery of animals and their experiences through visiting the exhibition. The third part will be a memory game, which involves body movement and also the game Who's Who, in order to complete the activity, allowing the children to consolidate the experience and knowledge acquired.

Recipients: 6 to 10 years old

Dates: 10th and 16th of June

Time: 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

Price per registration: Free

Instructor: Tiago Guerreiro

Synopsis: In this workshop we are going to bring to life the animals that we find in the exhibition “The other life of animals”, by MNAC. First, let's visit the show and see what animals we find there. Then, each participant, young or old, will cut out cardboard and paint them with gouaches, thus creating the various parts, from tail to head, of their favorite animal. It could be a lazy donkey, a green and orange zebra, or even a one-legged stork.

In the end, we will unite the different parts creating a real illustrated and animated zoo.

Recipients: children from 4 years old or families. Children up to 5 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
