The Educational Department of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo offers educational tours to draw students of all ages to contemporary art.
Children and teenagers are involved in lively tours where attention is focused on creating a dialogue with the work of art based on the signals given by the work itself: form, color and space are just some of the concepts enabling students to appropriately discover each work of art.
Tours take place within the Fondazione exhibition rooms and foresee a special involvement and sharing of the acquired information.
After this initial phase of the tour follows a workshop activity which varies according to the type of exhibition and work of art displayed, developing each time topics such as identity, corporal expression, gesture, movement, matter, visual communication, space and writing. Workshops are a fertile ground where students are encouraged to share their artistic experience through tours specifically conceived for different ages. There are permanent workshops which deal with issues and languages employed in the contemporary art field as, among others, identity, the body, relation between painting and the new media, sign and design, space and the concept of installation, color and multisensorial aspects in art.
In the past years the Educational Department has increased the number of intercultural and accessibility projects in order to promote the idea of an open museum able to host and create true moments of sharing and dialogue.
Along the daily activities of tours and workshops, the Educational Department develops all year round special projects reserved for students of all ages and tours specifically designed for kindergartens, daycare centers, summer camps and families.
