Based on the value given to the occurrences collected in class, the  Dynamics of Reflective Practices,  created by Helio Rodrigues, guides the art-educational thinking and doing practiced during the course.

According to the teacher, "the occurrences organize our actions, strengthen and help to think about the art-educational practices that we bring to the classes. They are important arguments of artistic language."

The contents covered during the course are intentionally connected with each other with the help of reflections that students are encouraged to carry out. The artistic practices presented also strengthen these connections, as well as helping students to legitimately appropriate the resources presented so that they do not become mere repeaters.

Program content


   Module 3 - Aesthetics and Art Education
 1. Transformation as a Tool in Art I
 2. Transformation as a Tool in Art II
 3. Transformation and Deconstruction
 4. People and Personas
 5. Symbology and Art
 6. Creativity and Censorship


Numerous artistic techniques are worked on such as painting, engraving, collage, modeling, monotype and sculpture, but these techniques are conveyed by proposals created especially to establish a relationship with the theoretical content addressed in each class, that is, in the classroom. “People and Personas”, the artistic proposal presented should instigate the student to reflect on this theme.

Once completed, the works are posted by the students for contemplation and exchanges between colleagues, added to comments recorded by the teacher, where he addresses issues relevant to the process and product that may be contained in that particular proposal. The intention is not just to present activities, but to develop the look and review of aesthetic concepts, and thus prepare these future professionals to act with greater respect and consistency on the processes and products of their students.


- To carry out the proposals, it is necessary to acquire some materials. See here the list of materials.
- Taught by Professor Helio Rodrigues and assistant professors support students throughout the course.
