POSTER ART (coordenado pela Áustria):
POSTER ART – TAKE PART!
Our project "POSTER ART - TAKE PART!" will be created by eight European Countries. The project focuses on poster art as a means to integrate The European Dimension into artworks. We perceive posters as objects of visual communication that combine artistic and linguistic elements, thus it is a tool for unrestricted expression. Most activities will happen on the street or will lead to public space. It will enable all pupils, including the ones with a migration background or special educational needs the opportunity to express their ideas and opinions through art shown in public. We want students to develop the motivation, self-confidence, artistic creativity and awareness of the multicultural European society. They will learn different techniques of preparing public messages (from ancient/medieval woodcutting and linen/paper screenprinting to modern techniques in web-design and social networking) and they will obtain professional background on poster composition and direct/compact messaging. The project aims at developing students' critical thinking, creativity and the basic ability of justifing their opinions. They will need to work cooperatively, so the teamwork abilities and social development skills will be enhanced. Art will be taken as a starting point to raise and discuss European issues. Students will express the results of their researches on horizontal issues. In „Poster ART” we will be using new technologies to develop intercultural exchange in a foreign language. We have been working on the related topic through TwinSpace and most our schools are experienced in the field of art. We have already met in the preparatory meeting in Austria to plan all necessary arrangements for 3 years running. We will go on having online lessons and monthly chat hours for students, using the project website, facebook group and TwinSpace blog as they are great facilities and opportunities to share work and interact. Every school will have a Erasmus Corner: a source of information for everybody where the developing activities are shown.
