This paper presents an educational experience in a social project for children living in at-risk conditions, involving one pedagogue and one artist. Both of them were working on the same project and studying at the same university, but only met at the project site. They partook of the same responsibilities, but didn't share them with each other. As I taught both of these students, though they were in different institutes and teacher training courses, I could follow their debates very closely. My aim here is to reflect on the necessity, despite the difficulties, of bringing together professionals from the fields of art and education. I also focus on the importance of finding methodologies for art education research that respect the specificities of this field. Using Jungian psychology as my primary reference, I discuss the importance of using images as guidelines for research in art and the need to develop very attentive and respectful observation strategies, so that everything that needs to be discovered has time to emerge.
