Da Vinci vs Picasso


Hello everyone!

In our lessons we have been working with the human body and by adapting our topic to art we thought what better way to use different techniques.

By using the perfection of the Greek canon or the cubist and surreal way of modern times we can see how the children have fun but also develop a sense of symmetry  and space.

Thanks to the help of one of our teacher students: Claes, the children also experimented with bright colours and mixing them in teams so they had to communicate in a way they didn’t have to before.

It was a great experience!

Brave heroes save us from the Great Dragon!!!


As always we started our art class explaining the medieval times to the children and for a better grasp of the concept we decided to have a dragon and hero scene where all the children were involved.

The smaller children had their art explode with creativity using many colours to make Dragons eggs with a very beautiful result:

The next group were fascinated by the castles and big constructions of the age, wanting make hundreds of drawings with their own personal touch and using geometry utensils to have it made PERFECT!:

And last but by no means least, the older ones enjoyed a fairy style lesson where they could choose between drawing a brave night or a delicate princess, to my surprise, most of the the girls and some boys preferred to draw a ferocious princess armed with a sword, capable of slaying the dragon too, it was an amazing experience:

This would be the end result, vibrant colours, amazing imagination and great fun, hope you enjoyed the pictures:

Here comes the Viking Ship!


Here comes the powerful Viking ship, and all the children collaborated to make a huge ship shown at the Spanska class window.

We divided this project in three groups

The smaller ones started with amazing shields which protected these amazing warriors and they would put them on the side of the boat. Many beautiful colours were used and the children understood how a Spanish teacher, in Spanish, told them about the adventures of these people:

The second group were in charge of doing the rows of the ship, what was interesting and challenging was the fact that they has to transcribe from Spanish to Runic the phrase ”Yo me llamo” which means I am called.

So, as a challenge, the children had to understand the phrase in Spanish, put their name beside this phrase and then transcribe it into Runic, which they could see on the wall of the classroom, and know which rune applied to the letter they were looking for and decorate and paint their row with this:

And finally, the third group were in charge of the body of the boat and the sail with a big dragon as an emblem.

The children did as the others regarding the decoration and writing first in Spanish and then in Runic, they had a great time:

In the end, they did a fantastic job and the amazing image that it gives makes EVERYBODY stop and look at it. Go Vikings!


Stone Age Art class

In this first art class in Spanish the children have learnt about the need the people of Stone Age times had to communicate and leave a statement of their culture and habits, without  the technology we enjoy nowadays, these people created a sort of elements that represented their daily lives.

The children understood that they had to make their own story with their own elements and so, they enjoyed it very much!

In this lesson with all three groups we learned that during the Stone Age there were no paper to write on, no pencils nor pens or technological devices to help us tell a story so, during this time the cave people left a statement of what they used to do: hunting, gathering, observing nature etc.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.
