Plastic expression and audiovisual communication not only allow one to guide
sensitivity towards art, culture and aesthetics, but also to favor the development of critical thinking, essential to understand the world and the society in which we are immersed.
For this reason we propose a transversal, critical, multidisciplinary program which helps the development and understanding of graphic, plastic and audiovisual language.
We will analyze with students the functioning of contemporary visual culture, so that with their own resources they can learn to develop a constructive, creative vision. To that end, they will learn to unravel the images of the world, the contents on the Internet or the implicit messages in the media.
We will promote artistic creation based on the active listening of each subject, case by case, addressing the tool of art as a resource to awaken the desire to know.
We consider it important for each student to learn to function freely, enhancing their ability to ask questions and to analyze responses, as a fundamental tool for decision-making in their professional future.
Students will have the opportunity to unleash their imagination, researching and developing individual and team projects. They will learn to express and communicate their ideas, thoughts, concerns and desires, giving them meaning and making them their own. To make all of this possible, they will be taught the use of different technical tools, encouraging them to experiment with them.
We instill respect for ideas and means of expression selected by others.
We transmit the creation of bonds and the value of commitment both interpersonally and socially, teaching students to confront their work with others, whether they are their classmates, teachers or the public, at the end-of-year exhibition.
We reinforce appreciation for creative processes and for a job well done, giving meaning to the figure of the artist and understanding their production based on their history and the era in which they have lived.
