Spatial Art in the Context of Online Education

The paper discusses the benefits of online education in the field of spatial art, and describes its considerable pitfalls. It focuses on creating a lecture as a document – a stand-alone ‘living’ file – a video that is always accessible and that combines elements of visual communication and visual language. The teacher views the emerging document from the perspective of the interpretation of the static and moving image. In the lecture as a documentary, the teacher – creator consciously works with mise-en-scène, montage and editing, sound and music and narration with the help of a moving image editing program. The paper compares the way of developing a classic lecture and a lecture as a separate document in the form of a video.

House of Imagination       

House of Imagination provides a range of spaces for children and young people to collaborate with creative professionals. It is a home for improvisation, creativity and innovation and a place to make these visible through research. House of Imagination celebrates an experimental, research-based approach to explore the potential, challenges and opportunities in the area of creative resistance and how this invites a new pedagogical approach. Signature research projects include School Without Walls, Forest of Imagination and House of Imagination pop-up spaces. These research projects develop new ways to approach creative learning across the arts education sector, prioritising creativity, critical thinking and co-enquiry. Artists and creative professionals work alongside young people to co-design a creative pedagogy using the city/village as a campus for learning and an experimental pedagogical site.

Covid 19: Artist Education as a Social Commitment 

This video intends to introduce a project that aimed to bring pre-school children to the current life, through Artistic Education, in order to meet the reading of the world, more concretely, Covid-19. In this project, the intention was to involve children in a problem that affects everyone and that requires everyone to live and act in society for a common good. By giving them a voice on the current reality, they were able to reflect and present solutions to resolve this pandemic. Thus, Artistic Education, always present throughout the project, proved to be a facilitating learning area in the formation of active and responsible citizens.

Visual Artist as a Superhero

This contribution represents a particular experience from the pedagogical practice, which is focused on a connection between the art and popular culture. Within the framework of the project, pupils created superheroes action figures equivalents according to their own design concept, to which were given an appearance of chosen artists of the 20th and 21st century. This allowed pupils to apply visual information about the artists and their specific characteristics of their work processes, which are known from the field of popular culture in a way that fans of the artist recognised their hero and the figure was able to become a collectible item. The assignment and its realization took place in a period of coronavirus distance education at schools in the Czech Republic. Each of the students had a different reaction to the assignment, but what all the works have in common is that the students would get acquainted with so far unknown artistic personality, his or her artwork and discover that all of these artists indeed were and are (super)heroes of visual art.
