Escuela de Arte Francisco Alcántara. Cerámica


Programme director: Ana Lizama (Head of Development and Promotion at Escuela de Arte Francisco Alcántara. Cerámica)

MAN coordinator: María Jesús Rubio (Outreach Department)

The pottery art school Escuela de Arte Francisco Alcántara. Cerámica and the National Archaeological Museum have teamed up to offer educational activities that facilitate interaction between pupils from the art school and other secondary schools. To this end, two workshops have been held so far: one during the 2021 Science and Innovation Week (“Of Dragons and Ships: Making and Designing Medieval Pottery”) and the other on International Women’s Day in 2022 (“Feminine History”).

The programme has two main objectives:

  • Encourage secondary pupils to learn history, not just by examining the artefacts displayed in the museum, but also by experimenting with the pottery techniques and materials used in different cultures and civilisations.
  • Give pupils from the pottery school a deeper knowledge of historic original ceramic pieces, rounding out their academic training and facilitating the pursuit of professional practices that could lead to new job opportunities in the educational and cultural fields.

Service-Learning and the Classical World project: Making Intergenerational Connections via the Classical World


Project leaders: María Cruz Cardete del Olmo (UCM) and Juanjo Carracedo Doval (IES Miguel Catalán, Coslada)

MAN coordinators: Ángeles Castellano and Margarita Moreno Conde (Department of Greek and Roman Antiquities)

Participants: UCM, IES Miguel Catalán, town councils of Coslada and San Fernando de Henares, senior associations in Coslada and San Fernando de Henares, AFA Corredor and ASPIMIP

Service-learning is a method that combines the acquisition of knowledge, skills and values with community service in a single educational project, in order to directly “serve” society by transforming and improving it.

Based on this method, the programme’s aims are to: combine the principles of service-learning and cooperative education on the subject of ancient Greece and Rome; encourage interactions between third-year history students from UCM and lower or upper secondary pupils from IES Miguel Catalán; strengthen intergenerational ties to de-stigmatise certain collectives and combat loneliness; raise social awareness; and introduce educational tools for creating a strong social fabric.
