Abstract

In this study we provide an overview of non-formal arts education. The main aim of the study was to show the presence of non-formal education institutions offering education in art forms such as dance, music, dramatic art, and visual and audiovisual arts, in addition to the other institutions, such as museums or creative groups that offer some type of arts education. Two aspects were considered: the presence of institutions and their profile. We found 4,790 institutions that are currently offering some kind of arts education. The data obtained were used to draw up the maps of the study. The first aim was to show the presence of non-formal arts education in two ways: first, according to frequency, and second, by weighting the levels according to the presence of institutions by counties. The results show a dynamic reality that is present and clearly reflects people’s interest in cultivating some form of artistic expression in their lives.
