In the 10th version of the school dyeing competition Colorearte, Education through Art, together with Fundación Mustakis and Anilinas Montblanc, we invited students across Chile to discover the colors of the bugs in our environment.

More than 28 thousand students from the 15 regions of Chile participated in the tenth version of this initiative created in 2003 by Anilinas Montblanc.

Our foundation has been involved since 2011 in its realization, enthused in encouraging the development of creativity, innovation and teamwork through art: a fundamental means of expression that increases and enhances cognitive and perceptual abilities and expands our capacity of observation and reflection.

In 2013, based on the theme “Bugs”, the students were able to discover these small living beings of their environment and dye textiles inspired in their colors, textures and forms.

In October, simultaneously all over Chile, the teams participating in the competition conducted an art action, intervening their urban or rural landscapes with their works. Our foundation played an active part in the audiovisual record of these art actions, recording the work of schools of Antofagasta.

The prize awarding ceremony was held in November at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and was attended by the nine winning teams of the 2013 version, thus assembling dozens of children from various regions of Chile. They received their award and were able to see the exhibition “Momentos creativos, Concurso Colorearte 10 años”(Creative moments, 10 years Colorearte Competition) in the educational hall of the National Museum of Fine Arts, which was open to the public for a month.
