I started studying mathematics in the US. I think that my studies in this discipline gave me a lot when it came to embarking on my career in Fine Arts years later. With this I want to highlight the importance of a cross-disciplinary or interdisciplinary educational experience. It offers us the opportunity to acquire greater visual literacy, that is, creative and analytical skills to solve situations and problems that are outside our comfort zone.
Visual literacy is the ability to evaluate, apply, and create conceptual-based visual representations. Skills include assessing the benefits of visual representations for creating and communicating knowledge, or for coming up with new ways of articulating ideas. The didactic approach consists of relating the visualization with its contexts, that is, providing the critical attitude and the necessary tools to be able to develop the appropriate visualization formats for specific issues, through the use of movement, form, rhythm, color and texture within from the framework of our context.
In this course we will create an active learning environment where academic and creative growth is fostered through practice both in groups and individually. We will develop technical and perceptual skills using the fundamental elements of drawing and painting to create images and capture ideas and stories and perhaps, during this process, we will discover new passions and other concerns.
