Exploring and sensing objects differently
This workshop was designed by three students of the Master degree "Teaching Visual Arts for 3rd Cycle and Secondary Education" to be done with the MILT youth participants. This action-research activity consisted in: a) photographing the objects related to positive and negative aspects mentioned by MILT youth in the school environment; b) participants, in groups of three / four, were invited to transform the posters (photography) being oriented to be creative; c) their intervention was made through clippings in magazines; collages; paints; drawing; among other materials provided, seeking to sensitize students in a playful way for the "preservation of school space", caring, and being part of the solution. This result of this workshop was in the exhibition during the MILT Conference in Lisbon.
