Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Since ancient times, art has been interventive in history, had a role as an interpreter but also of criticism, voiced concerns and inspired deeper personal and social change. This same capacity of art to intervene or express "something more" of each one of us points to the relevance of the relationship with the education of values. We are convinced that art is one of the deepest and most effective ways of working that which every human being considers valuable to himself: his values. We asked about which mechanism artistic education has to use to develop with students the values that surrounds them and that they critically should assume or reject. We choose as starting hypothesis, the expressive capabilities of drawing as a tool enabler of this education. Our ultimate goal is to assess, in a qualitative approach, if students express a different interpretation of a moral dilemma after draw expressively this situation.
