Art Education as a Tool in The Construction of a Symbolic World and The Elaboration of Subjectivity

Currently, we are captured by the empty and dystopian images of the digital universe, where the disenchantment with the world and its isolationism makes us unable to live in a symbolic world. Art education, structured in artistic observation and in the understanding of the creative process, both anchored in sensitivity and reflection, helps in the construction of a personal symbolic world and, consequently, accelerates the process of body and psyche integration.
