She has also written numerous articles and given a great number of lectures related with art teaching and its implications for culture. At present, she is on the Board of Governors of Art Education (a state-level consultative organ concerned with art teaching, which was created by the Organic Education Law) as well as being Vice-President of the Spanish Association of Art Education Centres – ACESEA) and a member of the Board of the National Youth Orchestra of Catalonia – JONC).
