Educational project for the 2014-2015 course
The Museu Picasso proposes a new educational project based on the importance of observing and dialoguing in front of a work: based on the appreciations of the students, an in-depth analysis of the work is carried out and a shared dialogue is generated by means of which their interests are expressed. The educator acts as a moderator of this debate and provides the students with the keys to deepen their own knowledge, a much deeper and lasting knowledge, given that it responds to the real learning concerns of the group, that by sharing their opinions reach new and enriching conclusions.
A painting lives its life like a living being, experiencing the changes that daily life imposes on us. That’s quite natural given that it’s not the painting that lives, but those who look at it
Prior notes for the teachers:
The new educational methodology undertaken by the museum is aimed at students from the 1st course of primary to adults. The groups from nursery schools who want to visit the Museum can do so during the school hours on free visits.
The workshop visits propose a participative visit in which, by means of the observations of the students and the dialogue generated between them, four works of the collection are analysed and observed; and a workshop that develops the topics that have emerged, based on the interests and appreciations of the group during the visit to the galleries, and that allow them in a creative way to carry out a jointly constructed learning.

What do we have in the foreground? What do we have beyond? Why is it that Picasso didn't always paint the world as we see it?

The museum proposes itineraries based around five works of the collection in which the protagonists are the students. The visit will be based on their interests and observations, and the attention of the whole group will be promoted by means of the reflection on their own opinions and those of their classmates. They will learn together, while improving their skills of observation, dialogue and expression.

We will use the debate in front of the work to explore the creative work of both artists, very personal and very different from each other, but at the same time with points in common.
