Miguel Castro

Miguel has been working with children and adults in education, in themes of expression and creativity, for 45 years. At the end of the 80s he met Arno Stern and trained with him in Paris. This meeting radically transformed his way of working, he abandoned artistic education and opened a painting workshop with the same characteristics as “Le Closlieu” of Arno. At the same time he opened another one of clay, using the same working conditions. He found “The Formulation” also with this material. From 1993 his research continues along with Vega Martín in the work with the body and the creation of spaces to play in what they call “Configuration Play”.

From 1988 to 2012 he has been a professor at the University of Cantabria teaching Creative Education. Throughout all this time, he has participated in International Congresses and given conferences, talks and training courses for companies, education professionals and parents. He is currently continuing his work as an assistant in the expression workshops and as a trainer in Creative Education.
