CAMARGO, Denise de e BULGACOV, Yara Lúcia Mazziotti. The aesthetic and expressive perspective in school: organizing sociohistorical psychological concepts. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.3, pp. 467-475. ISSN 1807-0329. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-73722008000300007.
Contributions of Arts on education are provided. Day-to-day relationships between people are more and more guided by economic and functional motives. The school institution has also been invaded by this logic stance and a fundamental space for interrogation has been lost. This has always been necessary to discover ourselves as autonomous, singular and non-static beings. Aesthetics may become an instrument to educate sensitiveness and may lead us to discover a world which has been unknown up to the present. Artistic activities - aesthetic and expressive - are defined whilst these factors contribute towards the expression and the organization of emotion and imagination as from the standpoint of socio-historic psychology. Workshops as spaces for activities and reflections, or rather, an activity close to Art, are also investigated.
