Abstract

The present research approaches the need to bring art closer to adult students, analyzing the process and the results of a course in a university program for the public over 55 years old. The interest of these students in art is given in most cases because they would have wanted to study art in their youth. Beyond the usual focus either on art history or artistic workshops, this program generates a multidisciplinary experience, introducing concepts and practices such as urban derive or performance. Aspects such as visual culture or digital technologies and art education are also integrated. This study adopted a research methodology of mixed nature, combining case study with arts-based research. The photographs acquire an important value as a result of the research. The benefits of lifelong learning were evaluated based on the participatory practices taking into account the previous experience of students and their knowledge in this regard. The information collected through individual surveys and focus groups highlighted a positive and rewarding result, according to the students.
