Abstract

This feature describes an ongoing art educational research project. Eighteen Finnish elementary school pupils and 85 university students of the University of Lapland were asked, “What do you appreciate about Finland?” They responded showing their values with photographs and briefly described their meaning. Topics of interest varied from Finnish nature to pure natural water, freedom, and everyman’s natural right. The children focused on outdoor activities, reading, studying, and other school-related activities, as well as animals, plants, and artworks.

Cuban community-art artist “Reymundo de la Paz Mundial” will make sculptures of recycled materials based on his interpretation of these works.
