AcciónArte was born in response to the concerns of a group of Costa Ricans involved in art and education, who join their efforts with several national and international organizations to promote new methods of education, and integrate them into the education system of public and private schools in Costa Rica.

The association is the promoter in Costa Rica of the Piensa en Arte program: an education initiative that uses art directly in the classroom as a pedagogical tool for the development of critical thinking, observation skills, analysis, appreciation of the arts and values ​​as Respect and tolerance.

As of April 2007, AcciónArte, the Ministry of Public Education, the Ministry of Culture and Youth and the Cisneros Foundation sign a co-production agreement for the application of Piensa en Arte, as part of the curriculum education of public and private schools and colleges in Costa Rica, and thus foster the t cultural ransversality.

Another initiative promoted by AcciónArte is the Exploration and Visual Thought workshops. In these, a visual thinking technique is used that promotes the development of skills for assertive communication, such as sharpening observation and active listening and motivating effective verbalization of ideas, which facilitates the exchange of critical information. Art is a vehicle for the development of soft skills necessary for teamwork and democratic coexistence. They are aimed at populations as diverse as groups of communities at social risk, officials of private companies, college and university students, private groups. etc.

AcciónArte  nace como respuesta a las inquietudes de un grupo de costarricenses involucrados en el arte y la educación, quienes unen sus esfuerzos con varias organizaciones nacionales e internacionales para promover nuevos métodos de educación, e integrarlos al sistema educativo de las escuelas públicas y privadas de Costa Rica.

La asociación es la promotora en Costa Rica del programa Piensa en Arte: iniciativa de educación que utiliza el arte directamente en el aula como herramienta pedagógica para el desarrollo del pensamiento crítico, destrezas de observación, análisis, apreciación de las artes y valores como el respeto y la tolerancia.

A partir de abril del 2007,  AcciónArte, el Ministerio de Educación Pública, el Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud y la Fundación Cisneros firman un convenio de co-producción para la aplicación de  Piensa en Arte, como parte del currículo educativo de las escuelas y colegios públicos y privados de Costa Rica,  y así fomentar la transversalidad cultural.

Otra iniciativa impulsada por AcciónArte son los talleres de Exploración y Pensamiento Visual.
En estos se utiliza una técnica de pensamiento visual que promueve el desarrollo de habilidades para una comunicación asertiva, tales como agudizar la observación y la escucha activa y motivar una verbalización efectiva de las ideas lo cual facilita el intercambio de información crítica. El arte es un vehículo para el desarrollo de habilidades blandas necesarias para el trabajo en equipo y la convivencia democrática. Están dirigidos a poblaciones tan diversas como grupos de comunidades en riesgo social, funcionarios de empresas privadas, estudiantes de colegio y universidad, grupos particulares. etc.
