in detail

During the 2016−17 academic year, using art as a tool, pupils from six schools have studied topics, such as the fact that there are many types of different families, things that set us apart from others and those that make us the same, the diverse ways through which the human being has created art since prehistoric times… The artists participating in this year’s project are Naia del Castillo, Iñaki Gracenea, Maider López, Manu Muniategiandikoetxea, Jorge Rubio and Ixone Sábada. Photography, painting, sculpture, or performance have been used as instruments to discover, explore, and attempt to understand reality, highlighting the value of individual and collective expression and creative freedom in the process. Through this exhibition, we seek to include our visitors in this exciting adventure.


This educational program was designed as a supplement to the Elementary School curriculum, using art as a tool and introducing transversal classroom projects from a multidisciplinary perspective. The program consists of workshops conducted in educational centers for 20 weeks by artists with outstanding careers and broad experience in teaching. Thus, schoolchildren can share their ideas and creative processes with real artists, approaching curricular topics in imaginative and more personal ways. Art becomes a tool to discover, explore and understand reality while laying emphasis on self-expression and creative freedom. Every workshop is bespoke and unique, designed with the interests and needs of each group of children and each teacher in mind. The program has been successfully carried out every year since 1998, with the collaboration of the Basque Department of Education, Universities and Research and the sponsorship of BBK—institutions that understand and appreciate the power of art as a tool in education.
Regular: 13,00 EUR / Seniors and Students (+26): 7,50 / Children under 12: Free admission. Admission fees may vary depending on the Museum program.
