Abstract

Through reflexive practice, this paper deals with public art, interdisciplinary and education issues, based in the academic and professional background of the author. Some key historical moments are highlighted as examples of artistic experiences citizen‐oriented and addressed to the community. Aware that this matter is often less covered in some courses of the 1st and 2nd cycle of studies in higher education, the author shares two educational experiences involving site‐specific projects, in which drawing plays an important role as an interdisciplinary language within the project work. In the various operational aspects of the project work, drawing is used as a privileged communication tool for thought and problem solving, as well as for the individual and collective artistic expression, in order to contribute to the improvement of the quality of the urban spaces.
