Art: Creative and innovative teaching methods


The course provides a set of teaching methods aimed at teaching History of Art. It has been developed on a training path that includes classroom activities, guided visits to museums, practical and sensory design experiences.
The course transfers instruments for a more scientific approach, observation and reading of the work of art, which facilitate student’s learning by promoting a critical thinking and observing. Abandoning a traditional didactic model, essentially notional, we can identify paths so the students become more effective in memorization of lessons art related.


At the end of the training course, participants will be able to design creative lessons that help stimulate student’s curiosity and ability to observe, read and critically thinking towards artistic pieces of art. This is available through the conscious use of historiographical and iconographic sources, web resources , bibliography, contemporary criticism so students will feel more involved in it.
In short, the main objectives are:
