Human development needs educational programs focused on promoting creative thinking, a sense of justice and kindness, among other capacities. The present research aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of an art and culture workshop for the human development of a group of adolescents. It was carried out based on a holistic perspective that integrates concepts, theoretical principles and practices of positive education (based on or derived from positive psychology) and emancipatory education, as well as taking into account the concepts of gender and interculturality. Three instructors from the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán and 17 students from a secondary school in the municipality of Oxkutzcab, Yucatán, participated. The proven effectiveness of the art and culture workshop ranged from good to high: the expected learning outcomes were achieved. Having a space for adolescents to live harmoniously, without fear of discredit, and in a framework of collaboration, respect and acceptance was key to achieving the objectives of the workshop.
