Education through art has a crucial role in the development of a sustainable development because it promotes creativity, innovation and critical thinking. Such skills are necessary to acquire an emancipating culture of equality and social responsibility, essential conditions to develop a sustainable future. If directed towards citizenship and education for values, the holistic nature of art education may transform the curriculum and reform school through transdisciplinary projects breaking boundaries between knowledge areas and enabling unique learning sites. However, this will only be possible if we reformulate current education paradigms and art education approaches and teacher training.
