Enric Font, teacher on the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, is the author of the article "Images in the public space: teaching practices linked to muralism in university spheres", which has been published in issue 8 (April 2019) of the MURAL journal, where he offers the example of projects undertaken with EINA Illustration Techniques students over various academic years.
Abstract Artist, researcher and teacher, he uses the creation of murals as a learning activity in two different university spheres: design and social education. The successive work phases, from the study of the environment to the execution, make it a complete learning project. With a clear final aim, it is a useful tool that allows the content to be adapted to different educational spheres. In this article, based on three intervention case studies, a reflection is made on applied work processes, objectives and dynamics. From the analysis of the learning aims, an assessment is made, on the one hand, of the different phases of the creative project and, on the other, of the prior reflection of the context hosting it, the public space, an element that determines a responsible generation of images.
