During the month of February, the heroes and heroines of 5th grades have experienced the third part of the AGLAIA UNIVERSE project from Beatriz Iranzo. After inventing each tribe a new language to transmit the importance of its value through body percussion, as we were able to see in the SToMP THe YaRD project, it was time to create their own ARTEFacto model to defeat the Hommo machine.
But … WHAT ARE THE ARTFACTS?
The ARTEFacts are the union of three important key words for all the process of development of the project itself, as they are: on the one hand the ART creation through the model, the Physical Education as a mean to use the coordination of the corporal movements and the ACTS which are the actions we carry out to cause a change.
The main objective of the ARTFacts was to build a model of a tool that would serve to defeat the Hommo Machinas and help society to find the needed patterns to change from the CHAOS in which it is after the disappearance of values. The different tribes have followed a creation process until achieving the final result, as detailed in the description of the steps that we can read below:
- Each hero and heroine brought different recycled material from their homes to supply the warehouse with possible materials that would help us to create the ARTFacts. Among this material we find cardboard, plastic, plugs, newspaper, water bottles, tree branches, tetrabricks, fabrics, …
- With all the material, the next step was for each tribe to choose the one that would serve to create their final ARTFact, so taking into account these data, they went to work to create a sketch, collecting the ideas contributed by each partner. of the tribe.
- With the created and consensual sketch, we move on to the creation stage. They went to work to choose and select the material of the warehouse of recycled materials, taking out what was indispensable to work with it such as scissors, glue, paints, brushes … to give life to the design they had designed.
- After several assembly sessions, we could see that the initial scketches were starting to become something magnificent and real that could be played. Once the ARTFacts were finished, it was time to fill out a form were all the details of the creation process,were detailed with the necessary data that will serve as informative support in the international exhibition of art “Fusion V” of London where they will be exhibited from 27 to March 31, to the staging that is being prepared for this event by the professional team of Nicola Torriti.
So that you can see all the way we have traveled with the project of the Heroes and Heroines, I leave the following video summary of the experiences we have lived since the month of December, when we began the adventure:
ONE MORE STEP TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE VALUES ARE CRUCIAL FOR THE INTEGRAL DEVELOPMENT OF OUR STUDENTS AND OF THE COEXISTENCE AMONG ALL THE PEOPLE WHO FORM IT, BESIDES BEAING ABLE TO SEE THAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF CREATING ANTYTHING AS MEMBERS OF A TRIBE THAT PURSUE TO OBTAIN COMMON OBJECTIVES.
