Art is a language and a tool; it is a different and enlightening way

of seeing the world.

Art changes children and children change the world

Childhood offers high potential for the future and art is a powerful tool that has a positive effect on kids both from a cognitive and a personal perspective. Since art shapes children’s minds, it has the potential to change the world.


The benefits of including art in education are many and very varied, and it becomes more obvious when it comes to children living in difficult socioeconomic conditions.

Based on such premise, this project aims to promote an aesthetic vision that will enable kids to pursue a better future.

Brief conversation between childhood and art

Now we will present the four basic effects of art’s presence in children’s everyday life. Its impact trascends the kid’s inner world and it is given concrete expression in daily life.

As the well-known psychologist Jean Piaget said, “education should build creators, not normal adults”.

“This is me”: self-affirmation

“This is what I do”: development of cognitive skills


The acknowledgement of one’s subjectivity is the first step towards change. This is because difficult socioeconomic situations not only damage material living standards but also psychological development and, therefore, self-esteem.

It is creative thinking what permits the improvement of problematic situations because it enables human beings to reach the ultimate expression of subjectivity, thus reversing psychological damage

decision making

Early development of creativity leads not only to a worthwile experience, but also to the cognitive growth that any artistic practice entails.

“This is my choice”: decision making

We have already referred to the development of one’s subjectivity and now we will observe its concrete manifestation in decision making.


Artistic practice entails a large number of resolutions that range from the theme to the material used. Children who are exposed to art are capable of giving the best of solutions to a broad range of problems.

“My life has completely changed”: end of poverty cycle


The teaching of the arts should be included in he broader field of education. There is a good deal of consensus regarding the idea that education is the main driving force of change.


Nevertheless, an utility-based education is not enough. It is necessary to invest in an education that includes arts so that it becomes holistic and enables children to overcome their difficult situations and develope their talents freely.

(Neuchâtel, Switzerland 1896 - Geneva, 1980)

Swiss constructivist psychologist whose detailed studies on the intellectual and cognitive development of the child exerted a transcendental influence on developmental psychology and modern pedagogy.

“The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing new things.”

In view of the advantages above mentioned we will implement a project that connects children and art with the goal of providing them a brighter future.
