Learning Through Art is an educational program designed to support the primary school curriculum using art as a tool. It encourages schoolchildren to talk about art and participate in creative processes, and helps them approach their school subjects in an imaginative, personal way. Looking through the lens of art, these children question what they see, they take apart, break down, and mix up things that are whole, joined, arranged… and rebuild them in their own way, in an original and personal manner, using mediums including photography, painting, sculpture, or performance. Art thus becomes an instrument of exploration and discovery, on a voyage that demands attention, thought, creativity, communication, and collaboration. After teachers set the objectives they want to reach and the skills and attitudes they want to strengthen, the artists and the Museum educators design a set of ideas and activities into teaching units. Each project is unique and tailored specifically to develop the skills and interests of each individual group.
