Celeida Tostes

The Radical Pedagogy of Celeida Tostes

Celeida presents a unique way of inventing artistic communities and fostering students’ encounters with their reality and expressiveness. The structure of her teaching was based on her individual trajectory and perception, with a focus on the expressive development of the student; her method sought a connection between the student and elements of nature, bodily sensations and associations with individual ancestry, consistent with her preferred medium: clay.
