 JANUARY - JUNE 2021 > ACTIVITIES IN SCHOOLS: FROM THE MUSEUM TO THE CLASSROOM

These activities are held in schools and led by educational staff from Museo Picasso Málaga. These activities last one hour and take place at the school, free of charge. They must be booked in advance. For schools in the city of Málaga.

CREATE YOUR OWN MUSEUM
For second and third level of Primary
  
What if the classroom turned into an exhibition room? And what if the pupils were in charge of deciding what’s on display? This is one of the new ideas MPM is offering this school year. Along with a member of our educational staff, the participants will agree on what works will be shown and how they will be displayed. They will consider art images, how they can be interpreted and their importance in museums. A real creative challenge!    

WHAT’S THE POWER OF AN IMAGE? 
For Secondary levels and Bachillerato  

Faced every day with a constant barrage of images, why don’t we take a proper calm look and then talk about them?
The key feature of this activity is a rigorous discussion of a selection of pictures by Picasso, so that all the pupils can analyse and think about them, based on their own knowledge, in a perceptive process that will stimulate critical thinking.
