Visits for School Groups

Programmed visits aim to make the Museo an effective teaching tool that serves to complement the education work in the classroom and contributes to the comprehensive learning of the pupils. The different programmes are run by cultural volunteers – seniors with extensive links to the Museo.

Primary School Pupils

AvanT-GARDE VIEWS

Recommended for 6-8 year-olds in Primary Education
This programme illustrates the emergence of Avant-garde art in the 20th century through the works of some of the most widely recognised artists from that time, both in Spain and internationally, for instance Ángeles Santos, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró and Salvador Dalí.

Moving Subjects

Recommended for 6-10 year-olds in Primary Education
The drastic changes that occur in modern society have an influence on all activities carried out by human beings. New lifestyles and new ways of seeing the world permeate through an artistic panorama that gradually adopts alternative expressive tools. This visit demonstrates some of the solutions developed by artists such as Alexander Calder, Man Ray and Pablo Picasso, supported by the idea of dynamism, the use of new materials and the overflow of the limits of traditional art categories.

BODIEs AND identiTIES

Recommended for 8-10 year-olds and 10-12 year-olds in Primary Education
