My Comments

I believe that contact with art is indispensable to the development of a child. When I see a child that can enjoy artistic activities, I see a child who is opening himself to observe and enjoy the world and life. I believe it is necessary that each child has the opportunity to live these experiences. Not once but constantly. Teaching art should become fundamental to the education. This way, we can transform into a better society. We will have children, adolescents, and later, adults who can trust in themselves, who can understand different perspectives and different worlds. we will see children who will be able to listen and learn from their errors. en sum, they will leave our classes with many tools that will help them become more productive adults for themselves and for the society. And we are working hard on these. And we are looking child opening themselves like these.
