Learning through art 2023
06.13.2023 - 09.17.2023
June 13 – September 17, 2023
This exhibition presents a selection of works created by more than a hundred schoolchildren ages 6 to 12 during the 2022–2023 school year as part of the educational program Learning through Art. This initiative has been running for 25 years, and during this time it has opened up new paths in schools around the Basque Country, exploring the Primary curriculum from an artistic perspective and using a unique pedagogical approach.
Elssie Ansareo, Ibon Garagarza, Zaloa Ipiña, Nerea Lekuona, Maider López, and Ibon Saénz de Olazagoitia are the artists who have accompanied students from six schools on this adventure over the course of twenty sessions. In these sessions, artistic projects have been developed to explore matters covered in the curriculum such as sustainability, water conservation, and the expression of emotions, encouraging schoolchildren to participate in their own creative processes, inviting them to think, value, choose, try, ask questions, have fun, and sometimes also to get lost and, of course, to make mistakes, since without error there is no progress.
The exhibition closes the cycle on this artistic process by presenting to the public the works these students created. Visitors to the show will have an unexpected opportunity to enjoy fresh and original views, explore inspiring ideas, and share in the excitement of discovery and creation felt by the participating schoolchildren.
