“The Karel Janeček Foundation believes that pupils acquire skills through specific experiences. Consequently, in the Creative Partnership programme the subject of geometrical shapes in mathematics is dealt with through a combination of dance and artistic techniques. Animation provides for natural history and geography as well as natural science. Chemistry is taught using theatre that shows the relationships between chemical elements. And in tandem with this, interpersonal relationships and the examination of culture and intercultural relations proceeds via artistic techniques and interior design.”
How would you like to go to school whilst simultaneously creating things with artists? Pupils from the primary school on Náměstí Karla IV in Nejdek and the Běžecká primary school in Sokolov have been given this opportunity within the framework of the Creative Partnership education programme.
The project puts cooperation between artists and teachers into practice, both in terms of creation and also in terms of preparing and implementing lessons. New creative processes are established, which get children interested and motivate them to learn and work independently. Their artistic sensibilities are also developed. Children look forward to school. Their mutual cooperation and coexistence in the class collective is enhanced. The project focuses on individual support for Roma children, but the artists and teachers also work with all pupils. The closing ceremony for the project will take place in Karlovy Vary in March 2016.
