“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”

William Butler Yeats

To bring Artficial into the classroom is like leaving the doors open during a thunderstorm: if you seek protection you can find shelter, if you are curious you can make new friends, and even if no one comes in, yet the smell of rain seeps into the house.

This is because Artficial is not a commodity but a vision. Artficial was created to bring every day the beauty of Art into the lives of everyone, because beauty has no value, but rather is a value that no one should ever be left without.

Artficial reinterprets Art so as to give the young the opportunity to experiment with the most important artworks in History so to bridge any gap between the artwork and the body of the observers, favoring a direct, intimate knowledge that involves the senses and fosters creativity.

To join the “making” of a work of Art together with its direct knowledge is the new educational frontier, where the young can learn organizational, cooperative, and time-management skills, which help them develop a project-oriented mindset rather than acquire superficial factual knowledge.

The Artficial platform allows students to perform a cognitive process on artworks, inviting them to share their experience and unique vision, and contributing, in so doing, to the creation of a diverse and plural society, where each individual can learn and get involved with their own capabilities, while building a fair and empowering educational model.

Dematerializing an object (as does Artficial with scanning and data management) and being able to rematerialize it anywhere else (with 3D printing) entails a vision of the world that can be shaped with the contribution of the young people. A world where they can profit from the power of ideas and networks so that they can be smart, collaborative, and allow everyone to make the most of global connectivity, intelligent machines, and the new media.

Introducing 3D printing in schools not as a tool, but as a methodology for creating objects of inestimable beauty, allows the young to learn together and from each other about the future of technology so that the next generations can guide its implementation and build a better world.

Combining the most advanced technology, such as 3D printing of clones of Artficial artworks, with the use of exclusively environmentally friendly materials, offers the school a valuable benefit within an entirely eco-friendly framework.

The use of Artficial clones makes the narration of the Art created by the blind an extraordinary learning opportunity for able-bodied.
