Last week the students of Art started a new project called Cool Notebooks. This activity consisted on creating a customized personal notebook they’re going to use in class. In this project students had to decorate the cover of their notepad with recycled material they brought to school. They had to use their imagination to elaborate a creative personal diary that represented them.
Throughout the course they are going to use it as an artist notebook. In this notepad they will have to make drafts of their drawings, stick important material or even decorate pages where they can let their inspiration flow.
In Art we’ve recently made some activities related with portraits and self portraits. Yesterday we talked about the artist Galimberti, a photographer who made an interesting project called “Toy Stories” that consisted in a collection of photographs about children with their toys.
The activity we did was to take photos of our personal objects we have inside our backpacks, deciding their position and the photos’ edition.
Finally we answered the following question: Are our personal objects giving information about ourselves?
Here you can see some pictures of the activity:
In 1ESO, we’ve recently worked on a creative project called Tangram Stories for the subject of Art. It consisted on three different parts. First, we had to create two animals with different pieces of a Tangram. Then, we had to stick two of those animals on our drawing workbook and to draw a specific background for them. Finally, we developed a short-story in English with the animals as main characters situated in the specific background we designed in class.
