BE smART! TRAINING FOR YOUTH WORKERS SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENTEDEditorial Team
The project “BE smART!” was a training for youth workers which was dedicated to the development and strengthening of visual – spatial or imaginative-creative intelligence with the help of 5 techniques and methods from art (drawing, painting, collage, architecture and sculpture) for young people. The human mind is made up of different intelligences. According to H. Gardner, these are linguistic, mathematical-logical, visual-spatial, musical, interpersonal, internal personal, as a sense of nature and existential center (https://isio.acs.si/doc/N-485-1.pdf). K. Geržan defines them as rational, social, emotional, spiritual, intuitive, imaginative-creative, physical-motor, aesthetic and intuition of irony.
The project aimed to raise awareness of multi-intelligence and put the young person at the forefront, adapt methods and ways of working to their needs, strengthen their weaker intelligences and support the development of their strong intelligences.
The purpose of the project was to train youth workers to use these methods in working with young people and thus influence their development and consequently the development of the society.
The project had two main objectives:
1. Develop a holistic approach to young people to strengthen the visual – spatial or imaginative-creative intelligence through various types of artistic methods and techniques (drawing, painting, collage, architecture and sculpture).
2. Transfer methods and techniques of art through non-formal to formal education (for teachers and professors).
