The Escuela offers a varied program of concerts, conferences, films, video and theater productions; activities which round up the students’ academic education. The Student Day is celebrated with a musical performance and outstanding students are awarded prizes for their academic achievements.
Social and cultural activities
Every year the Escuela de Artes Plásticas collaborates and advises many public and private organizations on the development of enrichment activities. The institution offers specialized workshops to community and civic organizations, which strengthens community ties, increasing an awareness among students of the social responsibility of artists. The Escuela has entered into collaborative agreements with government agencies and private enterprise to hold design competitions among students and to create art objects for these institutions, thereby fostering quality design and providing students with opportunities to work in their field.
In addition to an outstanding faculty, the Escuela de Artes Plásticas makes a great effort to bring in artists and lecturers from Puerto Rico and abroad to enrich the institutional offerings. All departments schedule a special activity once a year to which figures of international prestige are invited to lead special workshops and seminars.
Gallery and exhibitions
The Escuela de Artes Plásticas has an exhibition hall for showing the work of our students. The exhibition program is coordinated to provide the opportunity to exhibit to students from all concentrations. The Escuela also organizes collective exhibitions at other institutions and at public and private galleries. The institution encourages and helps its students and graduates to prepare their own exhibitions.
