teaching through art. This is the artistic process being carried out by the CEIP Trenc d'Alba of Xàbia as it is one of the 30 centers chosen from the Community to work on the project of Artistic Resistances. This is a program of the Consortium of Museums of the Valencian Community in collaboration with the Directorate General for Innovation and Educational Planning and CEFIRE, which aims to create collaborative work environments that unite art and education.
For this, all the students of the Trenc d'Alba have got down to work to develop the project 'Without cracks there would be no seas' by the artist, Estelle Julian. The entire school, from kindergarten to sixth grade, is involved in this artistic project based on geology where the important thing is to innovate and learn through art.
In a first phase, and in a collaborative and chained way, the children's students have worked on clay modeling, looking for the cracks in the earth and creating the base of the project.
This first step is followed by the work of drawing the contour lines, a task that corresponds to the 5th and 6th grade students and the preparation of models by the 3rd and 4th grades.
The 1st and 2nd grade students have been in charge of making the geological cuts to the elaborated models and thus ending the first part of this enriching artistic experience.
At the end of this month of May, all the CEIP Trenc d'Alba students will launch the second phase of the project in which they will make their own life-size creations.
artistic resistance It is a pioneering program that the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana promoted in 2016 and that has managed to develop more than 120 artistic initiatives in the Valencian educational network.
