A scuola di Guggenheim is the educational program for schools of all levels in the Veneto Region, which started 17 years ago.
The program offers teachers numerous multidisciplinary points of view to approach art and the collection of the museum. The various paths are intended to highlight relationships and analogies between art and various disciplines, includes useful concepts and themes for classroom lessons. Classroom teachings thus developed by the teachers will then culminate with a guided tour of the museum. These two steps will connect with the knowledge the students have already acquired, facilitate the recognition of the work and stimulate closer observation, appreciation and development of critical thinking on the part of the students.
The entrance to the museum, the guided tour and the teaching materials are free for participating classes.
In order to participate in A scuola di Guggenheim, it’s necessary to consult the educational materials and send a project description by December 31, 2019.
School groups that include blind or visually impaired students can request a tactile visit, led by a guide who is specifically trained in museum accessibility.
