Culture should not be a luxury.

Ustinov kindermalschule infantilarte ziel

The goal

Educational justice through culture.

  • Pan y Arte ("Bread and Art") was founded in 1994 by the German actor and author Dietmar Schönherr with the mission of improving equal opportunities and educational justice for children in Nicaragua. Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in Central America.

  • Dietmar Schönherr and his comrade-in-arms Ernesto Cardenal, the Nicaraguan theologian and poet, agreed: art and culture are not a luxury but are urgent human needs like daily bread.

  • For more than 25 years, Pan y Arte has safeguarded the work of the cultural centre "Casa de los Tres Mundos" House of the Three Worlds, which is also home to the painting school "Infantilarte".

The project

Discovering talents, promoting talents.

  • The children's painting school is a place to meet that supports artistic and visual culture activities for children from all social classes who either already have an artistic talent or want to discover it.

  • The Children's Painting School at Casa de los Tres Mundos is open to children aged 6 to 13 and offers them two-month courses in drawing, painting, engraving, handicrafts and sculpture design using papier-mâché.

  • Early artistic development through the playful handling of colours and shapes motivates the children to develop their own creativity.

  • In a cheerful atmosphere, the children are introduced to topics from everyday life in one-and-a-half-hour lessons four times a week. The curriculum includes dealing with the environment and climate protection, social grievances, customs and tradition.

The success

Art and culture for all children.

  • The painting school makes an important contribution to cultural life in the community of Granada because art is not part of the regular state curriculum.

  • Together with the Sir Peter Ustinov Foundation, Pan y Arte e. V. ensures that the children's painting school at the Casa de los Tres Mundos in Granada remains an open centre for the preservation and promotion of art and culture for all children, regardless of their origin.
