Speaking with Art

A School-to-work program

The programme involves students from Year 3 of the Liceo Artistico Statale in Venice, taking part in an experience at LE STANZE DEL VETRO until June, which will enable them to learn how to express themselves in a work environment and develop creative projects.

The students from Year 3 of the Liceo Artistico Statale in Venice are the protagonists of “Speaking with Art”, curated by Artsystem for LE STANZE DEL VETRO. The project – integrated into the Alternanza Scuola Lavoro programme – began in February and will run until June 2016, with the aim to teach the students how to collaborate within a team in a work environment, both planning and operating activities. During these formative months, thanks to a growing familiarity with the setting, its processes, its staff and the works of art, the students will develop their skills of oral presentation in front of an audience and their peers.

In the course of the first module the students are encouraged to learn more about LE STANZE DEL VETRO and they will be asked to produce a short promotional video of the exhibition space for their peers; the second module is focused on studying different types and methods of communication with the support of a cognitive psychologist and experts, and will end with a trial of oral presentations at LE STANZE DEL VETRO; the third module will see students plan a special event tailored for their peers.

Furthermore, “Speaking with Art” gives the students the chance to participate in two international study conferences at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini. The first focused on Paolo Venini and his important role as enlightened and creative entrepreneur, on 16th February 2016; the second will be on the exhibition “The Glass of the Architects. Vienna 1900-1937” on show at LE STANZE DEL VETRO from 18th April to 31st July 2016 – which will be held on 6th May 2016.
