Fundación Colunga and Urban Art invite you to visit, until November 4, the photographic retrospective "Color for Education", a record of the interventions that Fundación Colorearte has made between 2014 and 2018, with the participation of students in basic education, media and special schools throughout Chile, through the use of color and aniline.
The project, created by Anilinas Montblanc and Fundación Colorearte, emerged as an inclusive school competition, which already has 16 years of experience. Over time, it has become a practical educational methodology, which seeks to support formal education through art, empowering children with the soft skills necessary for the 21st century: creativity, communication, collaboration and critical censorship.
Patricia Reutter, President of the Board of Directors of Fundación Colorearte, highlighted, during the inauguration, the great work behind each photograph, by teachers and students: “I would say that the most important part of this contest is that children They have to work as a team. This has been what has driven us, because all schools appreciate that children have to work with a project learning methodology, which is finally to agree and do a job together. ”
Through practical work with color and Project Based Learning (ABP), the Foundation seeks to support teachers from vulnerable, rural and unifying schools, in the challenge of improving the quality of education in Chile. "I, until two years ago, was going to train teachers personally and came back with a full heart, seeing how they sacrifice for their children, love children and have a country project that is invisible," Patricia said with emotion .
In 16 years, more than 180,000 students have already been part of this project.
The exhibition can be visited from Monday to Friday, between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., in Sala Cable al Arte de Fundación Colunga (Av. Bustamante 26, Providencia).
