During the implementation of the project, various activities are planned.
- Training Activity for the teacher
The first one is the Training Activity for the teachers, whose aim is to accomplish the improvement of educational quality by providing a Methodological Guide for the teaching of Ephemeral Art in the school environment.
During the learning activity, the teachers will be trained in design software and 3D modeling as well as other technological tools in order to facilitate the teaching and development of projects with students. The artistic component will be conceived as a tool to improve the key skills of students. At the end of the training, the teachers will have to develop a project which involves ephemeral art, that will be put into practice in their educational centers in order to test the methodological approach that they assimilated and to transmit their new knowledge to the students.
- Implementation of Art Ephemeral projects in schools
The second activity will involve the implementation of Art Ephemeral projects in schools. This activity is essential to demonstrate how relevant is the application of Ephemeral Art as a tool for the development of the 8 key competences for Lifelong Learning.
The teachers will have four months to implement Ephemeral Art projects in their schools, promoting collaborative activities and work in multidisciplinary teams that will enforce the social and civic competences of the students.
The students will improve their communication skills both in their mother tongue and in foreign languages. During the realization of the project, they will learn how to communicate with their classmates and to establish their duties within the working group: one of them will be in charge of reporting the project, another of documenting it, the other one of making pictures, etc. They will enhance their communication skills in foreign languages since they will communicate with students from other countries. English is the communication language of this project and it will be used for the presentation and the realization of the video of the projects. They will improve their mathematical competencies through calculations, measures in order to use volume as a tool for making artistic sculptures.
This activity aims at the personal development of the students through critical thinking and the implementation of interpersonal skills. The ephemeral art helps to transform an idea into reality, which will boost the sense of initiative and entrepreneurship of the students. The realization of the project is related to creativity, innovation, and risk-taking, as well as the ability to plan and manage each phase to achieve their goal. Through this activity, the students will implement their cultural awareness and expression skills, they will recognize and appreciate the importance of the creative expression of ideas, experiences, and emotions through ephemeral art.
During the school event activity in each country, all art projects created by the students will be shown through an exhibition, with the participation of their families, public authorities, teachers, etc. An expert committee will evaluate and judge the artworks and will choose the winning team, who will be offered a special award.
The winning group will have the opportunity to participate in the Student Exchange Mobility, which is the third activity proposed in the project.
- Student Exchange Mobility
The Student Exchange Mobility will offer the students, accompanied by the teacher, the possibility to meet new cultures and people, share ideas and different lifestyles, strengthen European awareness, improve their communication skills in foreign languages through a participatory methodology.
- Multiplier Event
At the end of the project, a Multiplier Event is planned in Spain, in which all the project partners will also participate as the event will take place during the 6th and last transnational meeting in Madrid. This event will take place in the center of the city of Madrid, to promote the accessibility and participation of as many people as possible. The execution will be requested from the hall of events at the European Parliament office in Madrid. The target audience of the multiplier event will be varied, to increase the impact of the project and encourage interest and dissemination of tools and results: educational centres, in particular Primary and Secondary Education; youth organisations; art associations; cultural organizations; members of the Technical Committee for the Elaboration of the Methodological Guide; different media to support the dissemination of the project. The objectives of the event are:
– To make known the Erasmus+ Programme and its possibilities.
– Presentation of the Methodological Guide for Ephemeral Art teaching.
– Make diffusion of the intellectual product.
It will be divided into several parts:
– Inauguration by the competent authority.
– Presentation of the project, its objectives, activities, intellectual product, results, and impact. AIDEJOVEN as coordinator of the project will be in charge of this part.
We will also count on the participation of different agents involved, such as professionals, teachers, etc. from each country, who will share their own experience and benefits that the project has brought to their students.
The event will be broadcast in streaming after registration by all project partners within their own territory and sphere of influence.
After the closing of the Multiplier Event, all the information, videos, speeches and conclusions will be uploaded to the project website as well as to the websites of each of the partners.
