A tool to bring Environmental Education to the educational community
Would you like us to bring Proyecto Bio to your school?
Museums, environmental, cultural and government spaces are ideal places to carry out the BIO Project environmental educational proposal to any city or region. This tool was created to develop environmental education for the entire educational community.
Likewise, the art and environmental education workshops reach institutions, kindergartens and schools through a detailed and organized program, achieving direct interaction between the children and the artist. Students learn, share, express themselves and have fun freely in each exchange, thus awakening a common interest in art, the environment, science, education and culture.
By interacting with them, the artist manages to consolidate bridges, stimulating imagination, integration, resilience and group teamwork: “The concept of camaraderie is very much reflected.”
The environmental workshops contain 5 modalities, the ideal is that each group of students and teachers carry out the 5 workshops of the program because they were specifically designed. But they can choose for example: workshops 1,2,4 and 5; 1,3,4 and 5; 1,2,3 and 5; 1,2 and 5 or 1,4 and 5. But workshop 1 is always a priority and essential to connect and complement the other workshops.
Each institution will analyze the possibilities and combinations, being able to make queries and questions that you previously needed. Once the workshops and the days on which they will be held have been agreed upon, the agenda will be coordinated and a daily activity sheet will be organized to plan the sessions, since the workshops are closely related to each other.
The students for each workshop module that participate, will develop creative skills, stimulate their confidence, their individual and collective cognitive abilities, as well as the meeting with their teachers. All of this, which is purely experiential, will add up in each encounter with the artist.
The program is adapted to children and young students of all ages: students of first, second and third childhood. They will also be integrated with their teachers and professors, who must participate and accompany them in all the sessions.
Up to a total of 4 daily shifts of 2 hours will be established for groups of up to 80 children (which would be approximately the equivalent of two or three grades) until the action objective agreed with the institution is reached. This criterion is the same for workshops 1,2,3 and 5. Workshop 4 generally requires a full day. For example, if the school participates in the morning shift and afternoon shift, that day the students will be sharing slogans.
The program has workshop 5, which is a specific environmental workshop for teacher training to strengthen emotions and personal interrelationships among adults. This workshop is essential to establish new goals of coexistence and for each institution to renew its ties and its pedagogical values through the encounter with art.
The artist and his work with the students.
a) The individual experience, the personal capacities and the creative state of the child are connected. The artist will bring 4 to 5 banners with his environmental works. These will be used to communicate art and be able to awaken in the students the teaching and what they provide.
b) Basic trust is strengthened, environmental content and values are taught from the word and art is an experiential way of expression.
c) The students will then carry out individual practical work that stimulates that confidence and their imagination.
Workshop 1 integrates and recreates a group talk through works of art with environmental content in positive emotions to renew the children’s own talents by experiencing and empathizing with the artist.
