Same Ol‘ Pictures           

The author presents a series of paintings created during the coronavirus lockdown. The process of painting almost always takes place in a certain loneliness and isolation. In this respect, this period did not bring much change for painters. The difference was more in the ability to respond to the outside world; our radius of action has changed and for me personally the inspiration was more of a home environment. I focused my attention on the issue of an image in an image. Be it a screen, a display, an image in a frame or a distorted reflection, the meaning can be found in the context of the observed image or object and its surroundings. The name of the cycle refers to a certain exhaustion given by the repetition. We follow the constellations of the ‘old familiar’ image and the space in which it is currently located.

Virtual Learning Space and Its Impacts During the COVID-19 Pandemic Lockdowns: A Case Study of Art Educators’ Hangout             

There is a growing demand for global competence and cross-cultural skills, and that international experience is invaluable for teachers and their students; but the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic has put a halt to so many social and academic gatherings. For this reason, Teaching Visual Art has created a virtual meeting place for art educators tagged Art Educators’ Hangout. Reality of today’s world during the COVID-19 pandemic is that things are no longer the way they were. The world is observing social distancing and this has made it impossible for art educators to come together physically as the boarders are closed and countries are on lockdown. The Art Educators’ Hangout has offered the art educators the platform to discuss their works, interact and inspire one another towards advancing the learning field of Art and improving the quality of art education on the continent of Africa. The initiative is to foster dialogue and sharing stimulating art projects to improve creativity and art appreciation with the vision to build network of art educators across the continent of Africa that are locally relevant and influential with global perspective. This presentation provides the broad overview of the virtual learning space, Art Educators’ Hangout and its socio-economic impacts on Art educators during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

Developing Coping Mechanism during Covid 19 Lockdown through the Art of Paper Folding

The outbreak of Covid 19 pandemic all over the World was unprepared for, Nigeria was among the first countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to identify COVID-19 (corona virus) cases and has since implemented strict measures to contain the spread of the virus. Lockdown became inevitable to curtail the spread of Corona virus. Although government relaxed the lockdown on some days when people go out to stock the house food and essential needs, yet the psychological torture from this confinement is evident in idleness, feeling of stress, loneliness and boredom as a result routinely eating, playing, sleeping and perhaps a few other things away from their gainful engagement of the past. It was house arrest indeed, time is ticking, morale at a very low ebb, voluntarily or mandatorily because of the suspension of active economic, social and religious engagements. This study discusses the how engaging of youths in art related activities helped and provide a form of coping mechanism and escape therapy from boredom during Covid 19 lockdown. 50 participants were were selected online based on interest and engaged in creative paper fold called Origami therapy challenge. The results shows that engaging hands on hands on skills at a time of lockdown and isolation as witnessed during this pandemic would be a positive intervention to boost morale and serve as escape avenue from stress and boredom.

Musicking philosophy into practice: Online virtual workshop on the theme of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony "Ode to Joy"

Musicking is the term originally introduced by Christopher Small (1998) that simply means the act of music making. For Small (1998), music is not a fixed artwork, but an act, which is defined by singing, listening, playing, practicing, composing and dancing (Small, 1998). Dissanayake (2015) criticized the contemporary changes in the concept of overemphasis on performance outcomes, which, like sports, requires tough competition, and ignores the community sense of musical sharing. According to Dissanayake (2015), in a traditional society in any culture, music was originally shared in community from the religious ceremony to the local carnivals, and there was no wall between performing and listening. Everyone used to participate in music in a shared sense either by singing, dancing, playing instruments, composing. Although there is a vast array of literature describing musicking as a philosophy, there are very few examples of practicing musicking, especially in the field of educational settings. Ultimately, this study aims to construct a practice model of musicking by offering online virtual workshop via Zoom on the theme of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony "Ode to Joy".

Contextualized Art/education between Brazil and Portugal: mosaic and glass

This work aims to discuss Art / Education contextualized from experiences carried out in the mediation of Professor Teresa Almeida from the University of Porto, Portugal, in Juazeiro / BA, Brazil. That researcher was in August 2016 in the city with support for the visiting researcher scholarship via CNPQ. In addition to conducting thematic workshops, from mini degree courses, students, technicians and professors from the Federal University of Vale do São Francisco - UNIVASF, guided in the Mosaic area and the Glass area. Given the above, we analyzed what artistic / educational possibilities were built and reflected on the context of Art / Education contextualized since the semiarid. Finally, we intend to demonstrate the characteristics of the activities carried out in terms of research, teaching and extension and how a collaborative work between bridges can establish broader views on the teaching / learning processes.

Back to basic in art education in corona time: the contribution of arts to the lockdown at home

In this period of several moths when the society is at home, and the community has been restrained to the minimum expression, one the activities more developed in family the has been the artistic ones. This phenomena has been common in several countries. This is just the oposite to what happen in a regular school situation when the movements are free and the daily activity led people express themselves, including children, without apparent restriction. It is interesting to analyse why what happened that and how has been developed, obtaining data from what has been shared and published in different social networks. Indeed, the artistic activities developed, and also the theoretical background, seems to reflect a tendency to the basic in art education.

COVID-19: Art education for the awareness of today's society

The dizzying spread of the pandemic - Covid-19- is producing unprecedented social, economic, educational and cultural challenges and changes and has sown discomfort, uncertainty, insecurity and fear around the world. There are many measures to prevent the spread of the virus, which has impacted the lives of the population. Children, not being detached from the society in which we live, have also been subject to major changes in their way of being and relating to others. The aim of this conference is to understand the perceptions of pre-school children about the pandemic through artistic education. The choice of this area of knowledge lies in the proximity it establishes with children not only as an artistic language but as a pedagogical tool that enables expression and communication but also because of the possibility it offers children to access a “reading of the world”, enhancing more and better your participation in today's society.

This work focuses on qualitative research. The data collection instruments included direct observation of the activities carried out by the children and their individual narrative. The results showed that artistic education is a privileged way for children to express themselves and share feelings, concerns and ask questions, giving them greater confidence and social responsibility and inducing them to be transforming agents in the community in which they live. We also realized that we need to reorient artistic education towards responsible citizenship, prepared to make decisions around problems that humanity faces.

Learning to teach from home as a radical collaboration: becoming art educator in lockdown

This is a moment to capture and archive for art education; a moment in time to recall later in a career embarked upon in a global pandemic. This paper presents how we have continued to ‘learn to learn’ how to teach, while learning at home and teaching in remote virtual placements from home as a form radical relatedness (McKernan, 2004). We have developed new agile, responsive and ethical ways to design and co-design learning experiences to create curious and critical encounters for students who were also at home (Coleman & MacDonald, 2020). We have been working in our home studios developing new ways of learning art pedagogies and practices as individuals, as well as within an a/r/tographic collective. We have remained connected several physical ways: co-writing a speculative pandemic zine and sending artworks to each other while sharing all learning experiences as a co-lab for becoming.

Multimedial project in art educatin or the participation of students and teacher

Josep Beyus, german performer and on of the most interesting artists of 20th century, was also teacher of art. His concept of art education was build on an idea that art is for everyone and that the best way to be educated in art lies in practical doing art. His seminars were based on participation and open dialogues and sometimes were even presented as an act of action art – happenings (Information Act, Tate modern, 1972). In my contribution to this conference I want to present a multimedial group performance created by me and my students from Department of Art Education of Palacký University. The performance should demonstrates the attributes of art education (primarily in conceptual and action art) by creating new art pieces or repeating the old ones. Also it shows positive and negative sides of participatory education. This work is a part of research called The multimedial project method in art education supported by IGA.

Our workshop is based on the project of the same name, which deals with the methodological support of art education. It is based in the web platform www.nedatovano.cz (with accompanying Facebook and Pinterest pages), where you can find animated videoclips and worksheets with ideas for art education. This project has gained special significance during quarantine (in the Czech Republic the period started in March 2020, when all schools had to be closed), when it developed greatly and became an important volunteer-based activity that provided support not only to teachers, but also to children and their parents. In our workshop, participants can try one of the ways to implement distance art education. We will offer participants five animated videoclips and a set of worksheets inviting them to dive into a creative activity and to share their works. The materials will be available to download and to be used freely.

Distance learning, teaching art techniques and topics online

How to teach art lessons at a distance? We dealt with this topic throughout the corona period, when we had no choice but to teach at a distance. We have developed e-learning courses. We created the first lessons and tried online lessons. E-learning is a project for us that we want to develop further and we are looking for friendly organizations and financial support for our projects.

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.

Object Art and Artistic Jewellery [online]

The paper presents one of the options for substituting contact teaching of the subject titled the Art Studio of Metal Works, Object Art and Jewellery, which has been transferred to the online environment. Using software that has helped produce videos with instructional elements, it was possible, at least partially, to overcome the irreplaceability of contact teaching of the given subject, which is commonly based in the demonstration of techniques and work procedures while students work on their half-year artistic assignments. The paper analyses the processing of the videos and the available software tools, as well as the nature of the videos with instructional elements, which relate to technological procedures and working with tools. The conclusion of the paper points to the demands placed on the teacher and a brief confrontation of the classic lesson with the videos, that is, a direct demonstration of the techniques and procedures on one hand with the instructional videos on the other.

Ceramics at the Time of Quarantine | Workshop

The workshop is a continuation of the project, which took place during the quarantine within the subjects of Ceramics at the Department of Art Education, Faculty of Education, Palacký University Olomouc (CZ). Students could not visit a fully equipped studio, and from this limitation came the idea to explore the possibilities of "home" production of ceramics. The aim of the workshop is to find soil rich for clay in nature, prepare it with primitive equipment for working and then create any object (statue or utility vessel) from it. Then dry this product and burn it in homemade kiln – I attach a few examples of the whole process as inspiration, but participants can find their own solution.

4 + 1/3 + kk

A videopresentation titled 4 + 1/3 + kk presents the exhibition project of Robert Buček, which was interrupted by quarantine in March 2020. This unique exhibition project was designed for five gallery and non-gallery spaces in the centre of Olomouc. Each realisation was connected to either an established gallery, a non-profit gallery, or a university or sacral space. Thus, the project presented the centre of the city of Olomouc with a great aesthetic potential.

Unmask. A Study of Pandemic Form.

Last January, our school canceled classes, we went into quarantine. As the days and news dragged, ambulances screamed late into the night, Brooklyn and the Bronx were hard hit with Corona, as our spread and death counts soared. I often thought about my students, their health, sanity, and what kinds of things were they making or not. If being quarantined was stressful for adults, I couldn’t imagine what kids in lockdown must be going through. Then came the riots – so much distrust with the structural and racist systems in place. Shops boarded up. People marched day and night, the police and their helicopters took to the streets and air. Black Lives Matter, and so do Latino, indigenous, and the lives of countless others. The media cacophony was deafening as the collective we yelled, screamed, and raged against real and perceived social and political inequities.  By July, New York’s death count stabilized. We made headway into a flattened curve, and so did our spirits in the wake of devastating loss. Against this backdrop, I was tasked to develop an online class curriculum for the Fall. The work would also have to engage parents as supervisors. I accepted the challenge and ran with it, it's why I teach art.  Soon, I will be teaching virtual classes, this time we will be building a city out of cardboard. As New York struggles with how to reactivate one of the largest school systems in the nation, my students will be busy building and making. Over the trajectory of this pandemic, I've debated how can artists respond or create in the wake of so much pain and loss? How do we stay relevant and make work that isn’t about decorating living rooms or gallery walls? These are questions central to my art practice, as well as the use of the found, situated and discarded.

Virtual Plein Air Workshop

It has been decades since the Department of Art Education of the Faculty of Education of the University of Ostrava started to organize summer and autumn plein air workshops, where students consolidate theoretical and practical knowledge and skills acquired during their studies in the field. The plein air workshops, as a traditional part of teaching art education at universities, was unfeasible in its usual form this year due to the global pandemic situation. As it is an indispensable part of teaching, teachers and students had to look for another alternative. The chosen solution was a virtual plein air workshop, which took place in the form of electronic communication in MS Teams. The paper will be an evaluation not only of the operating conditions, but also a reflection on the inputs and the achieved results of the chosen teaching form.

Networking and advocacy, or The Wisdom of Crowds

I want to explore the theme of collaboration through networking.  In his book "The Wisdom of Crowds" James Surowiecki, the American writer and journalist, contends that groups of people can be collectively more effective at solving problems, undertaking innovation and decision making than individuals or elite groups. What happens when you also start to learn collaboratively and together in a network? How does the community of inquiry create learning space, and also support the well being and self esteem of those involved? Our community, our collaboration, our networks – they all give us opportunities to promote and to defend art craft and design education. This then, is my story.

A Sequence of Artworks Made in Response to Lockdown

In this research, I set out to document creatively the experience of domestic isolation during the pandemic. Finding ourselves listed as vulnerable, I began the practice of depictive drawing on paper folded into simple sketchbooks. At the end of each day, I have posted images of the drawings onto social media, finding an audience and a community online. The drawings map the disordered attention span of lockdown, track incremental changes and closely examine domestic space. The daily paper’s folded faces and TV news on various screens reflects the wider crisis. The drawings represent a sort of mindfulness practice, an engaged distraction, keeping busy with a creative project. Using a visual research methodology, I have accumulated data through a creative process to explore themes of isolation and reclamation of creativity in a time of crisis. The research is an ongoing art project. The presentation in the form of an mp4 file will represent a documentation of the continuing visual research.

How to Teach Art History, for High School, Online

The present work presents a series of classes developed with high school students, aged between 14 and 15 years old, held at the State School of São Paulo – Brazil. The lesson planning provides for the presentation of periods of art history with online classes. The contents were taught with projection of visual images and historical context (period, artist, works and technique used), through the TEAMS platform. The educational proposal aims to give the student a base of theoretical and expository classes, in online form, and from the information received, create, write and design their own art history book, with the essential characteristics that determine each period and creative layout to compose his work.

A Buried Spring or Why Do Students Need Art Education During the Crisis? How Was Art Taught during the School Closures?

Does it make sense to teach art remotely? Or should instruction focus on math and languages? The contribution presents the results of a survey among art and art history teachers, conducted by the Programming Department of the National Gallery Prague, and reveals what the emphasis on the "main" subjects during the lockdown distance learning meant for art education. Why is art education important? What can it offer students in the time of crisis? Conference contribution: Lucie Štůlová Vobořilová in collaboration with Hana Dočkalová, both educators at NGP. The animation was created by the artist Matěj Smetana.

My Place (on Earth) Imprinted in Clay

The workshop will focus on working with ceramic material, with malleable material. Working with clay – with natural material has a broadscale effect on a person, a pupil, on anybody. The workshop will take us from the haptic, relaxing, therapeutic effect that working with clay has on an individual, through perfecting one's own realisation while reflecting on creativity, to having control over technological pitfalls. An object will be created in the reaction of the creator to the environment that s/he knows best, that s/he can identify with, in which s/he resonates. This time we will work with clay without the final burning process, the material will be returned to nature by its gradual disintegration.

Challenges to Educational Methods in the Time of Coronavirus

Using a number of examples, the presentation shows solutions to significant questions arising in the discipline at the topical time of a seemingly remote crisis. The Coronavirus threat of what are, to most of us, still unknown consequences and the quarantine, which had never before taken place to this extent, determined very naturally and very quickly an existentially exacerbated situation in the spring of this year. This has posed fundamental questions regarding the meaning of our efforts in the realm of work and leisure; the effectiveness of disciplinary methods; and the media’s agility and capacity for action. We have been trying to answer questions relating to reasons as to why share and not withdraw into uncertainty. This is to say, the context of instruction has changed so fundamentally that the merely “remote” and different quality, medialised teaching of “what I would have taught anyway” became insufficient.

Stay Safe and Make Design" in the Design and Visual Communication course of the Degree in Communication Sciences, University of Oporto, Portugal

In this second half of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced a sudden and necessary reshaping of the way students are taught and contacted. To this end, a work proposal was launched in the Design and Visual Communication course unit, in which students had to apply the content learned during the semester to graphically and imagetically translate the message that in recent months proved to be most essential. Thus, it was proposed to the students to design a graphic composition that would translate the idea of "Stay Safe". In this way, while performing a graphic exercise using shapes and colors, images and typography, they could process their emotions and experiences - sometimes difficult and restless - during such a new and peculiar moment. This proposal was embraced with great enthusiasm and the answers are in sight in the compositions they have elaborated. But the best experience was the working process itself, which, although stressful, was rewarding. The technology allowed to explore a new interactive way of teaching in a Design class, while requiring the students to communicate in a more visual than oral way.It also made it possible to search for references more quickly, use online resources, and make live notes on the work itself. All this contributed, in a holistic way, to the enrichment of each student's individual path, and in the end it was possible to observe a great evolution that might not have happened otherwise.  Whenever the camera turned on and we shared a common space, even if it was virtual, the leitmotiv was "Stay Safe and Make Design".

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.

Inside-Outside: A Post-Covid Exploration of the Possibilities of Art Education      

At the same time as lockdown has isolated and insulated many inside the space of an apartment, in the world outside tempestuous movements rage. The virus, wildly infectious and minimally understood cuts an alarmingly rising curve. Hundreds of thousands mass in demonstrations about race, power, political interests, human rights, sectarian angers. Truths, speculations, petty gossip and lies mingle in social media and journalism. Economies teeter. Existing territorial and power disputes continue, perhaps grow.  The power we have as individuals, always somewhat fragile and limited, now appears further restricted by enforced seclusion and technologically mediated communication.  A widely lauded function of the arts is that art –making provides both a medium and a critical yet visceral framework to question, explore and make at least transient and perhaps troublesome sense of the inner human situation and the world outside. In arts education we probe how artists in our heritages have struggled with such sense-making and work to facilitate new relevant navigations into making meaning in the face of problems. In this post-Covid era (and I use the term post- in the sense of something begun but not yet completed) we have plenty of material that needs to be made sense of.  However, it seems that many of our most familiar tools have been confiscated and our opportunities curtailed. Some arts may be made in solitude; others depend on physical interaction.  All expect and need audience. The varied ways of using one or more of the arts as a medium for learning, for research or for health have developed in contexts that allow embodied and interactive collaboration. Can we usefully adapt our existing practices to survive the restrictions of this time? And can we do so with aesthetic flair as well as with educational effectiveness? This presentation will be in part theoretical, teasing out the core elements of what makes arts education effective. It will also examine some post-Covid examples of communal art-making that have sought to break through the barriers of separation, more or less successfully.

Towards Performance Art: Embracing Beauty in the Mundane

The presentation is reflecting upon stay-at-home activities created by the Department of Public Programming of the Moravian Gallery in Brno that are inspired by the Gallery´s art collections, introducing the various art works with emphasis on the creative process instead of the result as an artistic object. The activities are aimed to reinforce collaboration and connection within families and communities and to inspire creative thinking in the context of the everyday objects or situations.

(Distant) Contacts

In 1990, I realised an event titled Contacts in the Olomouc park with students. It was about making visible the mutual connections in space, the experience of the relationship to nature, trees and to each other. It was about experiencing the closeness. In 2020, a remake of the original event will take place. Again, we will want to experience and make our relationships visible. However, the context has changed radically. I assume that the feelings of the participants will be quite different ... And you are all invite to do the event wherever you like.

Musicking philosophy into practice: Online virtual workshop on the theme of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony "Ode to Joy"

Musicking is the term originally introduced by Christopher Small (1998) that simply means the act of music making. For Small (1998), music is not a fixed artwork, but an act, which is defined by singing, listening, playing, practicing, composing and dancing (Small, 1998). Dissanayake (2015) criticized the contemporary changes in the concept of overemphasis on performance outcomes, which, like sports, requires tough competition, and ignores the community sense of musical sharing. According to Dissanayake (2015), in a traditional society in any culture, music was originally shared in community from the religious ceremony to the local carnivals, and there was no wall between performing and listening. Everyone used to participate in music in a shared sense either by singing, dancing, playing instruments, composing. Although there is a vast array of literature describing musicking as a philosophy, there are very few examples of practicing musicking, especially in the field of educational settings. Ultimately, this study aims to construct a practice model of musicking by offering online virtual workshop via Zoom on the theme of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony "Ode to Joy".

For this reason, the studio moved it's activities to the virtual space. We have created a virtual educational and playful space for children, their parents, and teachers. Successful cycle "How our parents played" ... was replaced with the event Stop boredom – museum online in the series "Stories from the Museum." From March to June, we entered homes every Friday with a new story of toys from the museum depository and a video tutorial on how to make their own paper toys. We played together and showed how our parents and grandparents played. The project aimed to promote intergenerational dialogue between children, parents, and old parents through games and toys. We focused on creative activities inspired by historical toys.

Attitudes of Art Teachers Toward Implementing New Media Art

This study explored art teachers’ latent attitudes toward implementing new media artteaching by investigating their cognition. Postsecondary students studying art teaching were investigated. A technology acceptance model was used as the theoretical basis, and external variables were expanded to construct a questionnaire on art teachers’ perceptions regarding implementing new media art teaching. The questionnaire comprised six latent construct domains, including the ease of implementing new media art teaching, the effectiveness of implementing new media art teaching, attitudes toward implementing new media art teaching, the intention to implement new media art teaching, and facilitating conditions thereof. The maximum likelihood estimation of the structural equation model was used to analyze the relevant parameters and fitness index of the measurement mode to verify the rationality of the model. The model used to verify the hypothesis factor displayed a reasonably good fit, and the path of the structural model demonstrated that the research hypothesis was correct. The research results indicated that the facilitating conditions of teaching positively affect the ease and effectiveness of the implementation of new media art teaching. The attitude toward implementing new media art teaching, the ease of implementing new media art teaching, and the effectiveness of implementing new media art teaching positively affect the intention to implement new media art teaching. In particular, the effectiveness of implementing new media art teaching has a crucial effect on the intention to implement new media art teaching.

Teaching art education in time of Covid-19: Reflections on an art educator’s journey

This paper presents a reflective case study of an attempt to teach a studio-based art course for preservice early childhood teachers during the Covid-19 lockdown, between March and June 2020, in Athens, Greece. It presents my efforts to redesign the course syllabus and artmaking activities and create an interactive and supportive distance learning class environment to enable students to keep a creative mindset through this challenging time. Reflections on choices regarding synchronous and asynchronous instruction, lesson objectives and content, art making assignments and assessment illustrate the observations, feelings and lessons learned in regards to how teaching and learning has been kept up during lockdown and how it worked (or not) for students and me as an art teacher. This paper concludes with highlighting the strengths and challenges of the pedagogical and instructional responses used during this crisis and proposes changes in the curriculum instruction in order to facilitate transformative learning experience for diverse student needs, preferences and aspirations. It, also, suggests ways to incorporate the transformations made into my future teaching.

Adapting pedagogies in digital performance with young refugees and migrants

Inside. Outside. And Beyond is a digital storytelling project conducted with migrant and refugee youth in Ireland. The study used digital storytelling workshops and interviews, investigating how the 2020 lockdown affected students’ sense of belonging and motivation to speak English. Nested within a study on performative language learning and belonging, the study examined whether the lockdown restrictions have re-written the boundaries of inclusion and exclusion or sense of belonging in young refugees and migrants. This workshop demonstrates storytelling and drama pedagogies which were adapted for the online learning environment. We discuss successful aspects of the project that assisted in giving learners connection and agency in their learning environment, as well as the technological, personal and performative challenges.

Painting of Students in the Period of Isolation

The painting medium as a classic and slow method, in contrast to new media, is characterized by necessity higher concentration on the painting process itself. The topic for a painting project is usually assigned as a semester work. In the past semester, students worked on works with the topic of Reality Construction. They were invited to deal with the concept of reality as a separate fact that cannot be neutral for the subject. At the moment of an attempt to interpret reality, our knowledge, assumptions, as well as projections of one's own mental state apply. Painting as an attempt to reinterpret reality, which presupposes its own restrictions and limits, is probably not a linear optical perception, but rather resembles an interpretive collage, which is based on meaning-laden perceptions, memories, ideas. Painterly realism thus finds itself in the field of researching the symbols and signs of the contemporary world, where the mediated information prevails over personal experience. In the current artistic context, the realistic conception of painting finds itself on the border between postmodernity and new surrealism. The period of coronavirus isolation set new conditions for creation. Unintentionally, the individual deviates from established stereotypes. The functional system, which, among other things, determines the place of an individual in society and defines his social role, is suddenly different. I would like to offer the results of the students' work as a pictorial presentation.

Our workshop is based on the project of the same name, which deals with the methodological support of art education. It is based in the web platform www.nedatovano.cz (with accompanying Facebook and Pinterest pages), where you can find animated videoclips and worksheets with ideas for art education. This project has gained special significance during quarantine (in the Czech Republic the period started in March 2020, when all schools had to be closed), when it developed greatly and became an important volunteer-based activity that provided support not only to teachers, but also to children and their parents. In our workshop, participants can try one of the ways to implement distance art education. We will offer participants five animated videoclips and a set of worksheets inviting them to dive into a creative activity and to share their works. The materials will be available to download and to be used freely.

Case study of Rugao International Academy during the COVID-19 Pandemic and the Importance of Active Art During the Pandemic. 

This paper lays out the context of Beijing Foreign Studies University affiliated Rugao International Academy (RIA) and the way it has tackled the COVID-19. The health and safety measures brought about a number of issues, such as isolation, frustration and boredom, often leading up to conflict and divorce, all stemming from the lack of social contact. At a time of online learning and general frustration and lack of motivation caused by the psycho-social factors, it was the active role of art that offered a means of mitigation of the negative effects of the isolation. Particularly the lack of access to resources and the absence of social contact is what made the students and the audience of UK’s show Taskmaster turn the disadvantage into an advantage.

Temporary presence, Mr. Oswald           

The word ‘isolation’ in connection with human experience carries many meanings and connotations, both negative and positive. Both physical and emotional isolation, if not based on one’s voluntary choice, can leave its mark deeply affecting one’s life. In some cases, an affected person can transfer their trauma, even unconsciously, to next generations, and thus, such traumatic experience might become part of collective memory. It comes back to us and even future generations, often with the same intensity. After the end of World War II, the German population in Czechoslovakia became a subject to the principle of collective guilt and more than 90 % of ethnic Germans were expelled from their homes in Czechoslovakia without any compensation properties and property rights. The German family of Oswald P. (*1938) had lived on their family farm located in the North Moravia in Czechoslovakia since many generations ago. It was where Oswald and his three siblings were born and spent part of their childhood. In 1946, the family was forced to leave Czechoslovakia, as well as the rest of the village residents. It was their feeling of nostalgia and curiosity about what happened to their family home that encouraged them to visit the place of which they became only helpless observers, with no power to prevent its deterioration.

Virtual plein air workshop

It has been decades since the Department of Art Education of the Faculty of Education of the University of Ostrava started to organize summer and autumn plein air workshops, where students consolidate theoretical and practical knowledge and skills acquired during their studies in the field. The plein air workshops, as a traditional part of teaching art education at universities, was unfeasible in its usual form this year due to the global pandemic situation. As it is an indispensable part of teaching, teachers and students had to look for another alternative. The chosen solution was a virtual plein air workshop, which took place in the form of electronic communication in MS Teams. The paper will be an evaluation not only of the operating conditions, but also a reflection on the inputs and the achieved results of the chosen teaching form.

"My Superhero" Art Lesson       

Is art essential in a global crisis such as coronavirus? Can art “heal” the world? In Singapore, one had to quickly adapt to teaching and learning online. Domestic violence, separation anxiety, job security, lack of personal space and social interactions were some of the prominent challenges faced by our students. In such difficult times, teenagers lacked the platform to express their worries and frustrations as the external environment focused on tactical safety measures rather than emotional well-being. "My Superhero" Art lesson was designed to provide students with an avenue to express their fears and anxieties to address a situation that ws beyond their control. Resilience was nurtured through their imagination of a hero that could solve the world’s problems and gave them hope to carry on their daily living.

This paper presents how we have continued to ‘learn to learn’ how to teach, while learning at home and teaching in remote virtual placements from home as a form radical relatedness (McKernan, 2004). We have developed new agile, responsive and ethical ways to design and co-design learning experiences to create curious and critical encounters for students who were also at home (Coleman & MacDonald, 2020). We have been working in our home studios developing new ways of learning art pedagogies and practices as individuals, as well as within an a/r/tographic collective. We have remained connected several physical ways: co-writing a speculative pandemic zine and sending artworks to each other while sharing all learning experiences as a co-lab for becoming.

Re-thinking the meaning of art for children and adolescents and the type of art education for the future          

The current pandemic has swept swiftly across the globe and destabilized many traditional social institutions that we are familiar with, and one such institution is schools. The present crisis has also forced us to confront fundamental issues in art education that we have perhaps, ignored or not taken seriously for a long time.  Art education in schools is often subjected to political and social agendas and are ascribed roles that are consistent with and supportive of various governments’ ideals. While many of these roles of art education are reasonable and valid, it is timely for us to re-evaluate the meaning of art education for children and adolescents. In Singapore, we are fortunate that art is a mandatory subject for students from primary to secondary 2 level. However, what does art education mean to these young people and what can we do to create meaningful art experiences for them? In addition, present constraints brought about by the crisis such as social distancing measures, museum closures and online learning take away the very kind of learning in art that is anchored in actual physical viewing, demonstration, modeling and making. I will share experiences from Singapore’s context and discuss the need for art teachers to be technology-ready. I will also suggest that we think about why young people make art and the possible value it holds for them.

Visual Journal in Coronavirus Time

To create a visual journal is a usual proposal in Art Education. In this case, the project was made at Oviedo University (Spain) for future teachers of Primary Education (2019–2020 academic year). The briefing was: to get a visual journal as an exercise book, straegies carried out in the classroom or created for the subject (paste exercise,photos,etc). This visual contribution is divided into three sections. First, the instructions given to the students. Second, first results, with mastery of traditional techniques and topics related to the subject. Finally, results in coronavirus time: Covid-19 was observed like a new moment; more stereotypes; family becomes a character in visual diary; photography becomes an important tool; new topics apper.In conclusion, increased number of crafts and stereotyped themes, but at the same time we get a channel for the expression of ideas and emotions.

Teaching Drawing Course During Quarantine | Shifting from Realistic Drawing to Personal Expression

The presentation introduces the challenge of teaching the drawing course online. The sudden lockdown rules had closed down all schools in the Czech Republic. Teachers had to switch literally overnight, to online communication. In the case of teaching drawing was a very challenging situation. We had no idea what the nearest future would be at that time. I felt like my duty is to keep students occupied to provide them with the means of self expression to cope with the reality. I had to rethink the assignments. This experience also changed my understanding of being a teacher and helped me to see students with more complexity.

Cultural mediation at school: for an ecology of hybrid spaces of creation and transformation and citizenship through the arts

We are aware that in a crisis context, the cultural and creative sector is the first to suffer the impact and often governments support is drastically reduced. Arts and culture are too often undervalued in an educational context, when compared with of other subjects, but we know also today that the value of the arts is unquestioned not only in the development of creativity, but also in the construction and preservation of a common culture and in the construction of identity, in the development of territories, in the citizenship process, as well as in tolerance, respect for the other, and democratic issues improvement. This presentation aims to underpin the relationship between art and education and creativity, and its impacts on the educational and community context, reflecting on its relevance in the processes of formation of the individual, citizenship, participation, evaluation of cultural differences and the strengthen of community, common culture, an idea that has been relevante due to the political instability and social fragility that shadows Europe today. One of the main goals of this document is to reflect on and base the role of the artistic and cultural mediator in an educational and community context and its relationship with the processes of citizenship, participation, and its impacts on the educational and community territory, on the formation of the citizens and on democratic processes, as an agent of transformation, in the creation of close ties between the work of artists, cultural equipments, and in developing projects with school and community engaged hybrid projects, whose ecology of creation is based on the intersection between artistic areas and in the relationship with the community, territory and heritage, impacting on the formation of individuals and on processes of community construction and common identity.

ARTIS ET COVID-19: - teaching-learning practices, in Art, in Times of Crisis           

Now, we are experiencing a unique experience about the relationship between humanity and education, namely artistic education and its territories. In times of successive crises since 2008, in the context of a deprivation of the use of the school space motivated by health reasons and to combat a pandemic (COVID-19), the dimension of the teaching space learning in art and the experience and perception of its expression gains a special relevance in everyday life worldwide, depriving us of its full use. In a context of exclusion, there are expressions of resistance that are shaped by the way some artistic educational institutions and some artists react and that give voice, by artistic expression to a set of reactions of doubt, indignation and revolt. These impressions, mostly inserted in what we can, in a very generic way, classify resilience, are revealed in various ways from the simple method of teaching, to decisions made by school boards and art courses, more complex where they punctuate the restlessness, fear and critical awareness of those who produce them. These artistic practices of resistance do not leave the education system indifferent, motivating reflection and, often, the personal registration of these manifestations in the academic works produced. This analysis of the daily life of these long days of deprivation of normality constitutes the conviction that, on an exception, the transgression of rule and order translated by artistic expression does not leave indifferent those who continue to make the space of the School their place of choice, even in such a serious context of social withdrawal, in these profound days, almost and so equal to an endless succession of absolute Sundays. This communication, based on qualitative matrix methodologies, focusing on the exploration of the ethnographic process and using participant observation tools, hopes to be useful for general reflection in the context of this scientific event.

Face Mask as a Symbol of our Times

The presentation reflects how face masks, compulsory in many countries during pandemic, have become a significant symbol and object of daily use during these times. It also focuses on the aesthetic dimension of wearing a face mask – as many artists (and also museums, galleries, institutions and activists) use it as a canvas, as an artistic expression. The authors of the presentation also contemplate on social topics connected to face masks.

Art used for purposes of civic education is the main theme of this workshop and it is devoted to the topic „Water“. Workshop is based on watching art, on listening to art, on doing simple drawing exercise, and on reflecting practices of everyday life. Thus it connects various artforms to everyday values as well as to global issues. Participants will be asked to open their minds for different levels of aesthetic appreciation and to simple art practice. Requirements: Possibility to open youtube files in participants´ computers, several A4 or Letter papers plus pencil or pen at hand.

Face Mask as a Symbol of our Times

The presentation reflects how face masks, compulsory in many countries during pandemic, have become a significant symbol and object of daily use during these times. It also focuses on the aesthetic dimension of wearing a face mask – as many artists (and also museums, galleries, institutions and activists) use it as a canvas, as an artistic expression. The authors of the presentation also contemplate on social topics connected to face masks.

How can we keep on talking about learning? Pandemic time and the threat of an art education watched on screen        

Around the word, pandemic crises is changing how we perceive the meaning of social, cultural, professional and educational aspects of our lives. In Portugal, as a result of the lockdown measures, the government relaunched the educational television through the program #estudoemcasa (#studyathome). A partnership was formed between the education ministry and the public television station to carry out #estudoemcasa from mid-April till the end of June. This program was presented as “the new classroom” aiming to support student’s learning from different schooling levels. Art education emerged as a subject in which different contents were mixed and broadcasted weekly in the same schedule (visual arts, music and performing arts). Although describing a real situation that could be understood as a case study, I don´t intend to follow this approach, to call on a good practice example, but rather to reflect on the hegemony of models and discourses that, in a naturalized way, still prevail in art education learning.

Home alone – creative results of quarantining  

The paper presents current creative outputs of students of the Faculty of Education at Masaryk University in Brno – future kindergarten teachers, that were created during the lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic. The initially contact taught practical art seminars of the spring semester turned into a systematic individual work on a personal project, whose aim was to be strongly connected with the personalities, interests and hobbies of the students. Consultations, inspiration, mutual interactions and the presentation of the process of creation and the resulting works all have moved to virtual space. Despite the feelings of insecurity and fear, the sudden and unexpected situation allowed many to slow down and avoid distractions, stay at home, immerse themselves more, and begin to fully create.

Olomouc: The story of one exhibiton.

In spring 2020, the Regional Museum in Olomouc was scheduled to open an exhibition focusing on the history of Czech encyklopedies. Part of the exhibition was supposed to be the educational program primarily intended for secondary schools. The coronavirus pandemic ruined the plans. The educational potential of the exhibition could not be fullfilled in this way. It was decided that the main priority of the ‘covid-time’ would be to prepare an accompanying exhibition catalog. So it happened that both curators spent time in quarantine not only with their families, but mainly with F. Palacký, A. Rieger and other personalities of Czech encyclopedias. Nowadays, general scientific dictionaries are no longer published. This contribution presents the most important events in the field of creating and publishing general scientific dictionaries from the first attempt by F. Palacký to the ups and downs of the totalitarian and post-revolutionary period. It also demonstrates the exhibition, the opening of which was the first event taking place in the Regional Museum in Olomouc after it reopened to the public in June 2020.
