The project has been edited by a group called Avangarda which consists of ten secondary school art teachers, one University professor and one University assistant and assisted by some computor experts.
There are already on the web about 300 exercises and about 2800 pictures prepared to be used in the first and second years of Secondary school teaching art appreciation and art history. The main syntagm is : drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, photo and film.The main paradigms are the elementary sign, syntax, cadre,etc or Prehistory, Egypt, Greece etc
