EDUCATING WITH IMAGES
TEACHERS' PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING COURSE ON CURRENT ART AND ITS EDUCATIONAL USES IN COLLABORATION WITH CTIF
MONDAY & WEDNESDAY 4 – 25 MAY. 2011During this 21-hour theoretical course, key aspects of contemporary art will be openly discussed in order to understand and interpret contemporary art: from the death of the author and the crisis of the subject to the end of meta-narratives and the emergence of art as critical thinking.
While we raise the main existing issues in current art, we will analyze the possibility of using images as useful resources to be used in the classroom (and not only in Art History classes): the image is built and proposed by the artist as an artifact or a machine which creates discourses.
Through 7 sessions of 3 hours, professionals of art from different creative fields (museums, artistic practices, scholars) will deal with different subjects.
Sessions will be divided into two parts: a theoretical discussion based on reading materials followed by practical cases and exercises of images analysis.
Attendees will receive a 2-credit certificate issued by Consejería de Educación de la Comunidad de Madrid.
By David Cortés, Marta de Gonzalo and Pablo Martínez.
The course will take place at IES Prado Santo Domingo in Alcorcón.
