"Madam, when are we going to paint?" How many times have we heard it in our classrooms?"
In our circle, we will see and share examples of experiential art actions, we will discuss, we will ask ourselves, we will propose, we will play and we will see together the power that each form of art can have in creating the pedagogical relationship between the members of a school community. How can art lead to the happiness and self-realization of a child who, in such a rapidly evolving environment, seeks to find and express complex identities, overturning norms and powers?
Come on, to share experiences, anxieties and suggestions!!!
