This seminar reflects on how the Arts integrated approach in Education may enhance aesthetic sensibility and creative attitudes above other more pragmatic or instrumental knowledge and skills. Argumentation will take into account other issues related to the notions of creativity and sensibility in arts education, such as: 1) Facing external restrictions to achieve an internal purpose, according to Eisner´s idea of art education; 2) Risking self-efficacy and self-concept by accepting possible failures, according to the sense of vulnerability in A. McIntyre. 3) Opening and exposing intimacy to others as a self-donation, according to the notion of person in L. Polo. 4) Relying on team support, according to McIntyre’s explanation of dependence as reliance.

Reflection will be referred to the practice of art team work. Dealing with creative team work helps students to get engaged with common goods and interests at the same time they experience the aesthetic pleasure of self-achievement being materialized in concrete art performance.
