This exhibition shows the selected works of more than 100 schoolchildren aged 6 to 12, produced in the context of the Learning Through Art educational program, throughout the school year 2019/2020. Learning Through Art connects schools with artists, who work in close collaboration with teachers.

The program strengthens the role of art as an educational tool in the elementary school curriculum. By talking about art and being involved in the creative process, schoolchildren can approach curricular topics in more imaginative and personal ways. The activities in the program bear a direct relation to the different curricular areas: Language, Science, Mathematics, etc. Thus, art becomes an instrument to discover, explore, and understand reality. By means of a variety of artistic disciplines and techniques —photography, painting, sculpture, performance, and others—, the activities emphasize the importance of individual expression and creative freedom.
