PIRES, Maria Raquel Gomes Maia et al. Dialogue between art and education: an experience in the teaching of health administration classe. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.3, pp. 559-567. ISSN 0104-0707. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072009000300020.
In this study is described an experience on teaching of health administration in a nursing graduation course, mediated by José Saramago's book titled - The Intermittency of the Death. It is discussed the autonomy development, the creativity potential and the abstraction capacity during the nursing graduation course, through the interface between art and education. Claiming to show the learning possibilities with the use of art expressions and analyzing the experience of teaching Public Health System management in dialogue with art and education, begins a theoretical reflection on health administration content with the art expression. The experience indicates that the interface between the academic production, the practice theory, the creativity, the ethical and aesthetical abstraction produces learning that goes beyond of the rationality instrumental, contributing to capacity citizens and health professionals.
