schools

Guided tours and workshops for schools give teachers and students the keys to reading and understanding the language of contemporary art, allowing everyone to enjoy works of art from one of the most important collections in the world in a constructive and stimulating way.

Approaching contemporary art requires attention and independent thinking. It teaches us to establish connections between things and discover unexpected perspectives on the past and present. For this reason, our guided tours offer many interdisciplinary connections. Contemporary art tells us about many aspects of the world in which we live: sharing the outing with teachers of different subjects leads to lateral and surprising interpretations of the exhibitions.

Practical information

For the school year 2021/2022, two new workshops are organised for teenagers:

IN&OUT - NAUMAN IN CITTA
The group attend a very unusual tour in town: and follows the steps Bruce Nauman took in Venice, from the Tolentini’s Cloister in IUAV University, to the ongoing exhibition in Punta della Dogana. The urban tour is marked by the presence - visibile and invisible - of the artist: kids will develop a personal version - be it visual, verbal or sound - of this walk between town and museum.

Walk from Campo dei Tolentini to Punta della Dogana / 130€ per class
1 session

TEENS
After visiting one of the current exhibitions (in Punta della Dogana or in Palazzo Grassi), the classes produce original contents - texts, videos, photographs, audios - together with the educational staff of the museum and with their teachers: all new contents will show their unique perspective on contemporary art.

Palazzo Grassi or Punta della Dogana / 130€ per class
Minimum 3 – max 5 sessions

TEENS' EYES
This is a workshop to get to know photography from scratch: students start by building a pinhole camera. This home-made device will then be used to take shoots around town. This process is aimed at raising awareness in using photography as a creative means of expression.

Palazzo Grassi / 130€ per class
Minimum 3 – max 5 sessions

CLASSE DI RILIEVO DELL'ARCHITETTURA
The class includes an introductory lesson on the basics of architectural drawing, a guided tour of the exhibition HYPERVENEZIA and choosing a building/photograph to draw it. The goal is to collect different representations of Venice through the observation of photographs, discovering the city and analysing its areas.
