Art is a universal language, accessible to students and teachers of diverse backgrounds and abilities.
Collective art-making is an exercise in sharing, critical thinking, problem-solving, and classroom management.
Through group painting, installation, or other creative challenges, team members will practice skills transferable to the classroom – such as effective communication, critical thinking, and compromise.
In “creating” together, individuals will work toward a common goal and build trust in one another, resulting in a healthier and happier school environment for teachers and students.
At EAC we provide art experiences (training courses, workshops, conferences, corporate events) for schools and companies, in groups and teams, online, at our office in Barcelona, or on-site at your institution.

During the course participants will explore the therapeutic power of visual arts engaging with various artistic techniques such as drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, mixed media, photography. Teachers will be encouraged to express themselves in a free-of-judgement environment and will learn how to use art as a tool for the inclusion of students of various backgrounds, interests and abilities. .
Participants will be introduced to the main theories and practices of Psychology of the Arts, to experiment a holistic way of understanding and teaching the arts, empowering students’ creative process, lateral thinking, and wellbeing.
The course is designed to offer a hands-on approach to the use of traditional art techniques and ICT tools in the classroom. Integrating art and ICT in your lesson will increase students’ motivation in learning your subject and enhance 21st century skills.
Participants will practice STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Design, and Mathematics) activities and learn how to implement STEM education in their teaching practice. Fun activities and the connection with real life, will increase the sense of motivation, self-efficacy and problem-solving skills in the classroom.
Team Building Workshops for Teachers and Students
Mindful Art / Anti Stress Art
Art has an intrinsic healing power. It cleanses from stress, tensions, negative thoughts, and can positively influence blood pressure and breathing. During the sessions, participants will be encouraged to create mandalas, intuitive drawings, and paintings and will engage with body-mind activities involving movements, music, and mindfulness meditations. The creative and soothing atmosphere will facilitate self-expression, self-awareness, empathy, and collaboration with other participants.
Crearte > Inspired by Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso
Draw, paint, and create art pieces inspired by some of the most important artists in the world! Teams will be instructed on the artists’ main techniques and styles and encouraged to create artwork together with different art materials. The final product will be the result of the collaboration among participants, in a space that opens up to freedom and to the exploration of many possibilities that art can inspire.
The Pattern Method > Inspired by Antoni Gaudí
Create a team-artwork inspired by Modernist patterns and Antoni Gaudí’s work. Each team member will be invited to create a pattern that represents him/herself and then they have to create a pattern for the whole team! The final pattern can be realised using different materials, and can become a picture to hang, a screensaver for the company’s computers’ desktops, a card and so on!
Art Loves ❤ Nature
Make art in green spaces or with recycled materials. Art and nature are a perfect combination to boost positive energy, exercise creative thinking and collaboration! Inspired by land artists’ works, participants will be encouraged to create an art installation, using natural elements, art supply and recycled materials. Sessions will be held in parks and gardens around the city of Barcelona, or in the office.
