The objective of the project is to stimulate cultural enrichment and drive change at both an individual and social level, through immersion in diverse aesthetic experiences. These experiences are facilitated by a comprehensive program of activities that encompass a variety of artistic languages, including visual, sound and performing arts. The project seeks to improve already established workshops, aiming to offer an even richer and more impactful experience for participants.
From PHOTOGRAPHY classes:
At the end of the year, the “Multiarte” event will take place, where students from all workshops will present themselves, so in photography classes the focus was on recording events.
Among the topics covered, students continued the previous activities, which involve:
• Types of Light:
Natural Lighting: Learn how to take advantage of sunlight, including golden hour and soft light on cloudy days.
Artificial lighting: Understand how to use artificial light sources such as flashes, lamps and spotlights.
• Light Direction:
Frontal: The light falls directly on the subject, minimizing shadows.
Side: Light enters the scene from the side, creating more obvious shadows.
Backlight: The light source is behind the subject, creating silhouettes and contours.
• Color Temperature:
Understand color temperature and the visible light spectrum.
Learn how different light sources have different color temperatures (daylight, incandescent light, fluorescent light, etc.).
• White Balance:

Learn how to set white balance in-camera or adjust it during post-production.
• Creation of Atmosphere and Emotion:
Explore how color temperature affects the mood and emotion of an image (e.g., warm versus cool light).
Understand how the choice of color temperature can be used to tell a story or create a certain mood.

• Personal Expression: Street dance values personal expression and creativity. Students are encouraged to add their own style and flare to the choreography, which makes the dance unique to each individual.
• Rhythm and Musicality: Students learn to dance in sync with the music, developing a good sense of rhythm and musicality. This is essential in street dance, as music plays a fundamental role.
As a great end-of-year project, all the students got together and applied the knowledge acquired in each of the activity workshops they participated in to carry out, together with the teachers and team involved, the “MULTIARTE” event. This event seeks to show the application of technology in the arts and that all skills complement each other, proving that working together they can achieve something great, as was the event.
The families of all participating students were invited to attend the presentations at the event.
All groups worked together to achieve the outcome of the event:
• Choral singing
• Orchestra - Band
