Learning Through Art 2022

06.14.2022 - 09.18.2022

Every year, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao puts up a summer exhibition in which the artists are schoolchildren. This exhibition is the closing event of Learning Through Art, the education and art program carried out throughout the school year and sponsored by BBK.

The six artists who embarked on this adventure with elementary schoolchildren in 2021-2022 were Elssie Ansareo, Ibon Garagarza, Zaloa Ipiña, Nerea Lekuona, Maider López, and Ibon Sáenz de Olazagoitia.,

Learning Through Art (LTA) shows children – this year, almost 140 of them – how to deal with curriculum content from a different perspective. Social Studies, Science, Spanish/Basque, and Mathematics were some of the subjects dealt with in LTA 2021-2022.

The artists came up with interdisciplinary projects to deal with a variety of topics, including the recent Russia-Ukraine war and forced displacement, language and communication, concomitant migration issues, taking care of the Earth and imagining a utopian future, the beauty of the universe, and the role of women in art. All of them were current affairs and part of the elementary school curriculum at once.

LTA encourages children to ask questions, give free rein to curiosity, and make room for play and improvisation, research and exploration, trial and error. In the artistic process, kids think, assess, choose, try, have doubts, have fun, get dirty, get lost, get stuck, and, of course, make mistakes – for there can be no progress without mistakes.
