From 23/06/2015 to 20/09/2015
This exhibition presents a selection of works by the 143 children aged 6 to 12 taking part in the Learning Through Art education program during the 2014-15 school year.
Led by artists Elssie Ansareo, Naia del Castillo, Ibon Garagarza, Iñaki Gracenea, Maider López and Jorge Rubio, the program uses art-based activities as a learning tool to reinforce the primary school curriculum.
Teachers identify educational goals and skills to work on in the classroom with artists and museum education staff in order to design a series of workshops that meet said goals. Every program is unique and specifically designed to meet the needs of each participant.
Discussing art and participating in the creative process permits schoolchildren to explore curricular subjects in a more imaginative and personal manner.
Art disciplines and techniques, such as photography, painting, sculpture, video, and performance become instruments for discovering, exploring and trying to understand reality, placing emphasis on the value of individual expression and creative freedom.
