Keywords:art, plastic expression, teacher training, sustainability
Introduction: In the training of teachers, the approach to plastic expression can focus on the knowledge of materials and their transformation and life extension, upcycling and upcycled art, with a view to sustainability education practices in different contexts.
Objective: To understand to what extent the experiences of plastic creation through the creative reuse of materials prepare future teachers to educate for sustainability.
Methods: Research-action, with the following moments and actions: 1. Diagnosis - application of an initial questionnaire; 2. Planning - planning of practical classes and necessary resources; 3. Implementation - conducting experimentation and plastic creation classes; 4. Reflection - application of a final questionnaire. Subsequently, content analysis was performed to treat the collected data.
Results: The categories "Learning in the field of visual arts", "Learning about sustainable development" and "Learning about education practices for sustainability" emerged.
Conclusion: Students showed learning in the field of visual arts; concerning artistic practice as a means of reflection on sustainability, for the materials that are transformed and for the messages conveyed; and related to the transferability of the process experienced for different educational contexts.
