Abstract

This paper describes the experience of a three-day workshop at the end of the Visual Communication and Design course, in the first year of the Sciences of Primary Education degree course. The days of full immersion turned into a lively and creative “happening” during which communication and representation strategies for children were put into practice. The activities of painting, comics, photography, art and geometry were combined and integrated in order to experiment with reading images and to learn how to compose with them. At the end of the workshop, an exhibition of the final works was held, open to pre-schools and primary schools.
