Colorearte is a national competition for dyeing and creativity that enhances teamwork, reflection and observation through a powerful tool: dyeing. This, over the past 11 years, has become a valuable excuse for the promotion of artistic education of thousands of children all over the country. More than 70,000 students, along with their teachers, have been part of this colorful adventure, even those living in the most remote areas of Chile.

Students from 1st to 12th grade take part in the Colorearte contest and they enroll as a group or grade from their school under the supervision of a teacher. The contest invites students – and their teachers – to express the most of their creativity through the development of an artistic project based on a theme that varies from year to year, always posing new challenges where different disciplines, technologies and resources come together for the holistic formation of each of the participating students of different parts of Chile.

The theme of this year’s asked from each of the students to investigate and observe what best represents their community (whether it be festivities, traditional games, values, beliefs, foods, flora and fauna, among other things) to then create an art intervention within the landscape using aniline dyed fabrics.
