Exhibition Design

The Program

HIGH SCHOOL GRADES 1 TO 5

The program allows the students to become familiar with the museum field and all that surrounds the realization of an exhibition. To do this, they will have to create works and showcase them in a local exhibition of which they will be the designers. They will explore different artistic trends and different types of exhibitions. They will learn several artistic techniques such as painting, drawing and sculpture. In large groups and work teams, they will have to create the concept of their exhibition and their works according to a theme and a specific collection of works previously chosen. They will also have to design a virtual or physical model of their exhibition. Finally, they will mount the exhibition they will have designed throughout the year and will organize their opening.
