ART AS A PEDAGOGICAL TEACHING TOOL (Click to see the original news)

Art has always been present in societies, from the most primitive to the most current, helping individuals to group together through the way they interpret their reality and transform it according to their needs. In this way, art has always enabled the ordering of symbols, helping to convey meanings through drawings, images, and scratches, from their origins in cave times. Thus, we share the idea of Santa Rosa and Scalea (2006), when they argue that it was through art that the ability of the brain to produce images could be concretized and transformed into recordings in the world, different ways for their understanding about the world in which they are inserted, always learning with their culture.
In this sense, art, from its beginnings served to express meanings from symbols, since we know that human behavior is symbolic, and, according to Santa Rosa and Scalea (2006), this behavior in art is seen in a vision of that our life is like a reel, and unfolds in the course of life, going through many different paths throughout our lives, so that art is a historical and contextual representation. See what the authors say:
Brazilian contemporary art, in the 21st century, reveals the society in which we live: the total freedom of expression of the artist, but also the total freedom of interpretation of the spectator, since today interactivity is a sine qua non, as is speed from in
