Creative School Partnerships with Visual Artists: some remarks on an European Project

The presentation will briefly introduce the project and its goals within a contemporary thinking about arts education in primary schools. It will focus in more detail the Portuguese participation in the project. It presents how the arts are inscribed within the curriculum and the current situation in terms of teachers’ preparation to teach the arts. The project aims to rethink the place of the arts in primary school education and suggests a collaborative work with local artists. This presentation will underline the place of the arts as a significant curriculum subject that corresponds to a particular knowledge and way of knowing, that is more than the current expressionist or ‘to do’ list approach.
