arte y maestro
Arte y Maestro Weekends (Arts and Teachers Weekends) is a series of seminars for Aruban teachers, developed in collaboration with international and local professionals in the field of art education.
These seminars introduce teachers to the concept of art mediation and the importance of arts in school curriculums. Through discussions and exercises, the program will provide tools and resources to develop a new approach for a new art curriculum (Arte den Skol). Each Arte y Maestro Weekend will be hosted by a local or international professional in the field of arts education, who will share her/his best practices, methodologies and vision.
The seminars will not only provide guidelines and new perspectives but also encourage critical thinking and active participation by the teachers.

Understand the need for art in society and its limitations
