ABC-HOUSE MURALS KATRIEN DE BLAUWER AND TOUR OF THE NORTHERN QUARTER

As part of the call for art in the public space, the Belgian artist Katrien De Blauwer has created a piece especially for ABC House. Her work is transformed into wall panels that decorate the back of the building. These form a permanent, publicly accessible installation at the beginning of the Zennepark on the border of Brussels-City and Schaerbeek.

Alongside the work of Katrien De Blauwer, two panels tell the story of the Northern Quarter, created in collaboration with Brukselbinnenstebuiten. They also developed a guided walk through the district suitable for families and children.

ARTS & EDUCATION

What can education learn from the arts about the practice of education? Elliot W. Eisner argues that the distinctive forms of thinking needed to create artistically crafted work are relevant not only to what students do, they are relevant to virtually all aspects of what we do, from the design of curricula, to the practice of teaching, to the features of the environment in which students and teachers live. Originally given as the John Dewey Lecture for 2002, Stanford University. Read more … WikiPedia …


Wat kan het onderwijs van de kunsten leren ? Elliot W. Eisner stelt dat de specifieke denkvormen die vereist zijn voor het creëren van kunstwerken niet alleen van belang zijn voor wat leerlingen doen, maar voor nagenoeg alles wat we doen, van het vormgeven van curricula, het onderwijzen zelf, tot het ontwerpen van de omgevingen waarin leerlingen en leraars leven. Origineel uitgesproken in 2002 als John Dewey Lecture aan de universiteit van Stanford. Lees meer … WikiPedia …
