Regional Arts Week adds colour to the Placa Central

The Diario reports that more than a hundred works of plastic expression once again give (much) more colour to the centre of Funchal in what is the 2023 Regional Arts Week.

Accompanied by the Regional Secretary for Education, Science and Technology, Jorge Carvalho, the Regional President Miguel Albuquerque, was present yesterday afternoon at the Placa Central on Avenida Arriaga, where the colourful and attractive exhibition is taking place as part of what is the 12th Regional Week of Art.

“All the schools in the Region, from the 1st Cycle to Secondary Education, including also the Centers for Occupational Activities”, in a total of more than a hundred education and teaching establishments, are present with exhibited works by around four thousand ‘artist’ students and 120 teachers, pointed out the Plastic Expression coordinator of the Artistic Education Services Department, Ricardo Lapa.

“Anyone passing by on the avenue can appreciate the sculptures and learn a bit about art history, a bit about the style of ‘Pop Art’, the artists and their techniques, so it’s important to work in schools and work for the community , because it creates an art history lesson for people and for those who visit the exhibition. The teachers get rich, the students learn a lot and the population is much more interested in the style of art that we have nowadays”
