Summer Schools in Rural Communities
In 2020 ArtCrowd - Artists in Education launched the project “Club TOMAPAN”, which took place in July - September 2020 through a series of educational and artistic activities in schools near Bucharest and at the National Museum of Contemporary Art. This project aimed to familiarize students from rural, primary and secondary schools with notions of visual arts history and contemporary and historical work techniques in the field of contemporary art by implementing a course designed and tested by the ArtCrowd team through 3 schools summer in 3 rural communities.
The project also aims to test the reception of the project in schools and the long-term sustainability and scalability of the project in Romanian villages. For this purpose we will organize three events: The Summer School “Club ȚOMAPAN- History and practice of art for children”, between July 6-15and September 1-7 2020. More than 45 students participated in the activities proposed by ArtCrowd pedagogues and went through important moments in art history in a practical and playful way. A key moment was the guided visit to the National Museum of Contemporary Art, where the same students were able to complement their knowledge of art history by going through some important moments in the history of Romanian contemporary art in the permanent exhibition "Seeing History-1947-2007" and by participating in a workshop designed for their ages and their interests.
In September, the exhibition "Club TOMAPAN" was opened in the three partner schools in the project, on which occasion the colleagues and teachers of the participants became familiar with the activities of the project and could share impressions and ideas for the future.
