We discuss Art

In the classroom the teacher will act as a catalyst, stimulating the student so that they participate and give their opinion on the different categories of Spanish art.

Whether it's painting, architecture, theatre, literature, music, cinema……… The most representative from each period will be covered.

As the field is much too vast, the students can suggest the monographic topic to the teacher that, at a specific time, is of most interest to them.
