“Art is life and life is art” as stated by the Japanese artist Yoko Ono; art and life cannot be separated. Art education is fundamental for the development of each human being; it is a different language that has a huge impact on anyone’s life.
Thus combining the freedom of Art and the thinking solutions of Design is the greatest combination for the creative development.
