With the implementation of this workshop, it was possible to create moments of analysis, reflection and sharing of knowledge and experiences in the field of Adult Education in non-formal context.

The drawing and painting workshop made it possible for the trainees to develop drawing and painting skills, that allow for an understanding of their personal evolution. It allowed them to draw and paint better, at the same time as developing social skills that are important to them for a better global insertion in society and particularly in family, with friends or in jobs.

For instance, two children with Asperger's syndrome attended this workshop and the results obtained in painting and drawing were excellent. Improvements in aspects such as self-discovery and also the socialization process were also remarkable. 

Incentives were created so that people could present ideas and feelings through drawing and painting, overcoming the fear of exposing themselves in groups and increasing their self-esteem.

It was important for us to create conditions and situations in order to work with these adults and present their ideas and their feelings in writing, allowing them to increase their self-esteem.

It was a very important opportunity for:

Adults trainees:

to get to know themselves better and discover their own sensibility, creativity and imagination;

to look at the others differently, understand him better, understanding the differences between people;

to share practises and ideas in group; 

to understand the importance of life-long learning; 

to become more motivated for future participations in other social activities.

Trainers of Adults:

to contribute to making adult training important and useful;

to prepare adult education tools that can be used in the same training with other groups of adults (sustainability of the European project itself at national level regarding the role of the organisation itself).

to reflect on their job as adult trainers, on challenges of Adult Education and changing practices if necessary.
