Creativity is fundamental learning for all schoolchildren. Proof of this is that the Ministry of Education (Minedu) has modified the curriculum, increasing the importance of this course and the teaching hours dedicated to it.
In the comecomeland.com portal, it is detailed that the Art curricular area has as purpose to develop sensitivity, creativity and critical thinking of students to recognize, value and appreciate the characteristics of their culture and others. Also, it provides opportunities in which to express their tastes, ideas, emotions, and feelings through different artistic expressions such as music, theater, dance, and visual arts.
It offers students several opportunities: to transcend with the use of different artistic languages to express, with freedom, their perceptions about reality, their beliefs, their emotions and feelings; to develop an emotional balance and a creative and playful development to transform their own being and act with freedom, equity and justice that leads to the transformation of culture in its context.
The British Council has a collection of 8,500 works of modern and contemporary British art, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, drawings, prints, photography, videos and new media. With the support of a team of professionals in the area, we promote the British visual arts through activities such as traveling exhibitions, workshops, seminars and conferences led by British artists, as well as study programs in the United Kingdom for visitors who come from other countries.
We organize art exhibitions with works from our collection, promote our artists and work in collaboration with various institutions to curate exhibition projects for museums and galleries around the world. At the same time, we are hosts of the British Pavilion in the renowned Venice Biennial.
