Our Educational Approach

The delivery of our art workshops is based on our understanding of how adults learn.  We assume that any attempt at facilitating such learning will have to be adapted to learners' needs. Based on this ideas, and once all participants are registered in a program, we do an initial assessment of expectations and experiences among the members of the group.  Based on this assessment, instructors will meet with the group to share the final plan for the workshop.
Facilitating adult learning will include the following:


  • Familiarize participants with equipment, materials and techniques, showing examples and demonstrating their use.
  • Promote the expression of different points of view and propose ideas to expand and/or change points of view


  • Allow hands-on practice, guiding participants as they create independently, in teams, or as a group


  • Display  art work created for review and critique


  • Promote and support the presentation of work accomplished through public exhibits or display in CubArtEdu website.

Our goal is to facilitate educational travel to Cuba that will result in meaningful intercultural interactions between art doers, viewers, historians and critics from Cuba and the United States. Visits to Cuban artists' studios and art and educational institutions, together with conferences, hands-on workshops and demonstrations provide unequaled education as you experience Cuba's rich cultural diversity.
