Margarida Mestre’s work aims to encourage teachers and educators to bring the experience of artistic languages into their daily practice, in what they have of experimental and expressive for their students, always considering them as beings who deserve a global learning: Mind, body, sensitivity.
Held in partnership with Centro de Formação Dr. Rui Grácio, this workshop is aimed at early childhood educators and primary school teachers.
Information and registration until 25 November 2019 here
