Education

Educational project

Work being undertaken by the Department of Education and Cultural Action (DEAC) of the museum focuses mainly on the start-up of activities and programmes aimed at a wide range of ages and interests whose main aim is to encourage and stimulate the knowledge and enjoyment of the museum's Permanent Collection and Temporary Exhibitions.

We share the knowledge of other professionals in the field of museum education and listen to the contributions that members of the general public participating in our Educational Project offer. Our end objective is to achieve proper intermediation between the museum and private interests, generating proposals that make people think of the museum as somewhere that generates valuable experiences of knowledge and learning.

Pre-School and Primary Education

The student programmes of the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum cover the Education System at all levels and are provided as educational tools that make dialogue and reflection possible before works of art. They are also a means by which to develop social skills and stimulate knowledge in students.

In some programmes, students will be accompanied by a museum Educator; in others, it will be the teacher him, or herself, who will guide his, or her, students on the visit. This latter is what happens in the Discover the Museum, First Contact Itineraries, Basic Itineraries and Antique Painting Programmes. On the other hand, students participating in the Visiting a Workshop Programme for Students with Visual Handicaps or Impediments and their fellow classmates consists of a route that has been specially adapted according to the level of the students. Students will also visit a space in which they can experiment both tactilely and haptically.

  • All Programmes are sponsored by the BBK Foundation.
  • Teachers can suggest any subject they would like to address particularly and Department staff will take care of all the rest.
  • Visits can be organised in Euskera (Basque language), Spanish and, hopefully the majority, in English.
  • Teaching sessions will be periodically organised for teachers in which they will be informed about the chosen activity and documented accordingly. Should the teacher be the person accompanying the group as a guide, then he, or she, will be provided with the proper guidelines and methodologies in order to be able to give the visit.

For any questions or additional information please call (+34) 94 439 61 41.

Teacher training

We understand art as being a first class educational resource that lets people develop their capacities and boost their spirits and critical analysis regarding things that surround us. Art is vitally important in our overall development as people.

For this very reason, almost all the educational programmes organised by the museum go hand in hand with training sessions targeted at teachers in which they are informed, documented and, if necessary, thoroughly prepared for the visits. In the case of those visits in which a teacher is leading the group as a guide, then the teacher must attend the preparatory sessions prior to the scheduled visit in order for the visit to be completely successful.



For any questions or additional information please call (+34) 94 439 61 41.

Programmes for adults

Oriented towards adults and teachers on training programmes, these Programmes in which adults and teachers will always be accompanied by a museum Educator offer the possibility of visiting the museum´s different Exhibitions and considering the analysis of works of art.

People with special needss

iberdrola

We invite people with visual, cognitive or other handicaps and impediments, or who are participating in social insertion programmes to get to know the museum Collections.


People with visual handicaps or impediments

People with visual handicaps or impediments are given the opportunity of acquainting themselves with the museum Collections thanks to the collaboration of Iberdrola and ONCE, the Spanish National Association for the Blind. Firstly, they will take an approximately 1-hour visit through the museum´s different exhibition halls before taking part in a specially prepared experimentation space where they will be invited to have tactile, physical contact with a series of materials and artistic techniques and four sculptures from the Collection in order for them to be able to analyse the relationships between size and shape, texture and matter, etc.

People with cognitive difficulties

In collaboration with Iberdrola and Gorabide, the special visitor´s programme designed for people with cognitive difficulties poses an introduction to the museum that is specially adapted to the needs and interests of each particular group. The aim of these visits is to offer people with special learning difficulties the same resources, spaces and services that are available to the remainder of the general public. Not only are visits intended to prove useful tools in their everyday lives and in the lives of their carers, but it is hoped that they will prove to be agreeable, meaningful experiences for everyone.

People participating in social insertion programmes

Visits to the museum´s Permanent and different Temporary Collections have been specially designed for people in social insertion programmes. A museum Educator will accompany them on these specially prepared visits that will use methodologies that will be adapted to each particular group´s special interests and expectations.

For any questions or additional information please call (+34) 94 439 61 41.

  • Touching the Art

    Touching the Art

    An innovative project for visually impaired visitors.

    IBERDROLA has been supporting the Museum Education Department since 2008 in its bid to give an increasing number of publics accessibility and to stimulate the development of target groups through activities using art as an educational tool. With Iberdrola’s backing, the Department has run guided tours in galleries and experimental workshops for people with visual and intellectual disabilities and for other collectives with special needs.

     Now, thanks to a pioneering technique that enables people with visual disabilities to access knowledge of artworks, five paintings from amongst the masterpieces in the Museum collection have been specially selected for a new educational initiative, specifically designed to let people discover paintings by touch. The paintings chosen are El Greco’s The Annunciation, St. Sebastian Healed by the Holy Women by José de Ribera, Lot and His Daughters by Orazio Gentileschi, Mary Cassatt’s Woman Seated With a Child in Her Arms and Lying Figure in Mirror by Francis Bacon.

    Known as Didú, this remarkable new technique, developed by graphic arts organization Estudios Durero in Bilbao, endows flat images with textures and relief contours up to five millimetres thick. A photograph of the image in high resolution.
