About this Line: Around the World in 6 Museums is an integrated visual arts project where students are invited to go on one or more virtual visits to some of the most famous museums in the world. They will be given the opportunity to explore, enjoy, rethink and recreate famous works of art according to their own interpretations, skills and expanding competences. The main goal of the whole project is for students to learn more about the relevance of contextualised 3D art and to develop their sense of self through artistic 3D creations. As they explore the principal museums of the world, students are invited to recreate art by masters in their artistic field whilst making visible (and remarking on) the close relationship between the visual arts, the role of museums and the history of art. Students will also touch upon what art (and their findings) tell us about the history of humanity.
