Confronted by new demands and challenges, which are a consequence of the new global orders brought by social, economic, technological and educational changes, schools and Education urgently need to find clear ways to innovate and adapt to the new but also unpredictable circumstances. Bearing in mind the prescriptive and narrow curriculum, focused on what are considered to be the core subject areas, we believe that by designing a project based on an artistic approach it will be possible to broaden and make it more flexible, in order to actually work the skills regarded as vital for the twenty-first century. With projects like this we expect to improve students’ learning, as learning becomes more meaningful and personal, as well as to revive teachers’ social roles, since teachers are asked to work with each other collaboratively. This particular project, implemented in Escola Artística do Conservatório de Música do Porto (CMP), was developed based on the work of Paniagua e Istance (2018) regarding the clusters of innovative pedagogies, which highlights learning through the arts as it prompts the involvement of the physical, artistic, emotional and social dimensions in learning, as well as on the work of the composer Bart Quartier, Image, which named the project “Images of Image”, by combining the following pedagogical approaches: experiential learning and embodied learning.
