Workshop visits on Pablo Picasso. New Collection:
1. Turn your head!
Second and third form of infant level and first cycle of primary
The pictures hanging in the museum are inhabited by strange creatures imagined by Picasso and humans who look a bit like animals... After getting to know these characters and adding their own ideas, the children will have a chance to design their own fantastical creatures.
2. Assemblage
Second and third cycle of primary
Just like Picasso, the pupils will put together sundry objects and materials to make sculptures, using the assemblage technique. Frequently seen in Picasso’s work, this technique serves as is the thread linking the visit and the workshop activity.
3. Etch Yourself
Secondary and bachillerato level  

Throughout history, self-portraits have served artists as a means to project themselves to others, sometimes as mere physical representations, other times as mirrors to look at. In the museum the genre of portraiture, portraying ourselves with cameras and reproducing our photos in engravings, will help us to further explore this genre.

Workshop visits based on the exhibition We are Completely Free. Women Artists and Surrealism (Ends 26th January, 2018):
1. Masks
Second and third form of infant level and first cycle of primary

Masks are objects that are full of meanings, sometimes tragic, sometimes comic. In the exhibition We are Completely Free. Women Artists and Surrealism, we will be taking a look at some of them. Then, back in the workshop, we will use different art materials to make our own masks.
2. From Other Worlds
Second and third cycle of primary level

Many of the artists whose work features in the temporary exhibition imagined fantastic landscapes, unreal worlds and impossible scenes, using a provocative and avant-garde artistic language.  After getting to know some of the works by Leonora Carrington, Lee Miller and Maruja Mallo, pupils will create an artwork in which they can convey their thoughts and dreams with total freedom, just like these great women artists.
3. Another Me
Secondary and bachillerato levels

The photographs, collages and drawings present in the temporary exhibition will serve the students as an incentive to investigate and reflect on their own identity and that of the artists present in the sample. From a careful selection of images and aided by different artistic materials, students could express themselves freely on wooden supports.
