Course Description

The course takes a multidisciplinary approach to art and art psychology, introducing participants to different ways of understanding and teaching arts, dealing with the students’ creative process and taking the best of the positive impact of art-related activities on our wellbeing.

It is based on a broad understanding of art and creativity across the lifespan and will draw on work in several disciplinary areas such as neuropsychology, pedagogy and sociology, to consider creativity at different ages and in different contexts and specifically to consider the artistic phenomenon as a combination of perspectives and situations (artist, viewer, artwork).

By the end of the course teachers will learn how to combine art theory and practice in a productive way, to actively maintain students’ attention and motivation throughout the creative class and process, including: art production, art communication, preparing and visiting an art exhibition.
They will also be invited to improve their own creative attitude though a simple series of group and individual exercises that stimulate lateral thinking.
Participants will be involved in an active learning process, also focusing on personal experience and self-expression, combining cognitive and emotional elements to make the learning process easier and ensure long-lasting retention of the new knowledge.

It was a great experience to discover the connections between the theory and practice by myself and in the class. On the whole, the course offers theoretical knowledge in relation to a practical perspective and supported by a professional teacher. Thanks for this impressive week!
