The Chillida Leku Education Department brings visitors closer to the work of Eduardo Chillida and to the museum program. Staying true to the artist’s philosophy that “art isn't taught”, the museum's tours and activities offer a direct experience of Chillida's artworks based on observation, experimentation, reflection and action.

“I don’t believe in teaching art either. Art can be learned, but not taught. The desire for knowledge is immensely powerful. It can overcome anything. This goes some way to explaining that while I respect the act of teaching, it may result in the simplification of certain matters, and this is what I reject. The fundamental aspects of art cannot be taught. No one can teach you what is fundamental. You have to learn that yourself.”

The Education Department approaches the museum as a meeting place—an open and welcoming place that facilitates an exchange of knowledge and experiences. It is an active space that generates learning processes which are adapted to the needs of its users.

The Department also creates alliances and networks with local agents, schools and institutions. The museum listens to the needs of the education community and is open to the possibility of setting up collaborative projects which not only facilitate greater dissemination of the work and philosophy of Eduardo Chillida, but enable a greater understanding of his work.
