HIGH-SCHOOL

Spanish Artistic Baccalaureate Curriculum
Grade: 12
Time: 3 months project

Students from high-school addressed the questions of “What’s Globalization?” and “How did image and sound changed our perception of reality?” The central focus of this lesson is to encourage students to work as social researchers and artists using their own experiences and critical thinking skills, to create an animation project based on the data they collect from their social contexts. Students worked collaboratively to discuss the overarching questions. Later, each student developed an individual question addressing different themes such as consumerism, environment, social networks, modern slavery. Students collected information starting from their own personal experiences, as well as, their community members such as friends, family, students and teachers. As a result, students elaborated a script, a storyboard, a research artist-book and an animation project. They used chalk drawing techniques, photography and edition applications. This project has been presented to the school community using the art classroom as an open studio, in which, the Smart board functioned as a movie screen. The animations short films have also specific artists music such as “Society” (Eddie Vedder), “Of Monsters And Men” (Dirty Paws) among other musicians. Also, before showing the animations, each student presented their findings to the audience. (The music has been removed from this page to respect authorship copyright policies)

Grade: 11
Time: 12 sessions

The central focus of this lesson is to inspire critical thinking about the students’ role as consumers while addressing the question of: Where does water in Valencia comes from/goes? Students analyzed the natural water cycle with and the water consumption and commercialization. As a visual response, students created a serie of photographies inspired by the work of the photographer Sebastiao Salgado shown in “The Salt of Earth” (2015), a documentary by Wim Wenders. During this lesson, students also created an Instagram account, a newsletter and an exhibition title and individual statements.
