Art is a discipline which is always present in our daily lives and in the decoration of our school. Through artistic language our pupils express themselves by means of different elements, in which creativity and imagination play a relevant role. For the child, art is way of living, of learning, and of having fun, and benefits them in numerous ways. A way of feeling life and of becoming aware of the world, encouraging them to create, to learn, and to innovate.
We are convinced that art strengthens our pupils’ intellectual capacities, but also benefits their communication, and the link between parents and children at a young age. Through art, the children think for themselves and develop their creativity, imagination, artistic sensibility, and emotions.
Our school is decorated with the work of all our pupils. In this way, they feel that the school is a space made by them and for them. A way to motivate them and favour their self-esteem, confidence, and the development of their creative skills. We believe that creative thinking must be shared and validated by others in a social environment of support.
Thanks to the creative arts we favour creativity, discipline, and individual and team work. As well as being a way to exteriorise feelings, it is also a way to find the necessary strategies to solve any obstacle they may face. The vehicular language of the subject is English, something which helps them to become closer to other cultures. Furthermore, our pupils participate in different local and international competitions: creating a mascot, a painting exhibition, photography exhibition, and a competition by the Sant Cugat Town Council.
