SextoMario is taking its workshop on Arab tiles to Casa Árabe’s headquarters in Cordoba. It will be teaching about this very characteristic feature of decoration from Cordoba’s era of the caliphs at this event on October 28. You can sign up now.

Students will be reproducing an Arab design from Cordoba’s era of the caliphs on a tile, simulating the “dry rope” technique. The goal in doing so is to increase awareness and spur practical thinking about one of the most important art techniques from the era of the caliphs, known as “manganese green” ceramics. At the end, they will all get to take home their tiles as a souvenir from the activity.

All of the materials required for the activity will be provided by the organization, so those attending just have to enjoy and learn from the workshop.
Workshops for Youths: Arab tiles
SextoMario was created because of a calling to teach about history in a fun and pleasant way, but without leaving out the fundamental contents which make up our values and culture, through an extensive catalogue of educational workshops and games.

Through this focus, the workshops strengthen skills like attention, memory, psycho-motor skills and coordination, while the kids learn about different aspects of our past, and at the same time thinking about the present we are living in now.

SextoMario is made up of professionals with advanced degrees in Art History, History and Archeology, with wide-ranging past work in education on history and archeology in Cordoba. Moreover, they possess a great deal of experience in the field of teaching, which allows them to offer those whose take part in their workshops with extensive, diversified information on the history and archeology of our past, always in accordance with the level of those participating.

As part of their long-standing experience, throughout the years of 2012, 2013 and 2014 they developed several educational programs with the CEP of Cordoba, putting on workshops with schoolchildren at primary schools and giving archeological tours with secondary school students. Included amongst these programs were specific events for pre-school children and others studying under special systems, for whom the contents and structure of the workshops were adapted.
