21 Nov Art and cross-curricular learning: History through Art
Secondary students travelled through the centuries on a journey that has led them to discover the Greek society, the culture of some African and European ancient villages, the first settlements in Prehistory era and the Egyptians.
An exciting and surprising journey, accompanied by images and creations made by the students themselves, as if they were men and women of those historical eras.
We investigated the use and the different types of masks in Africa, and then, listening to African music, we made them!
We made gargoyles using clay, created amphorae and other utensils used in ancient Greece, painted animals and people on paper, as if it were the walls of an ancestral cave (rock art!).
And, finally, we even decorated Egyptian tombs going in depth into the culture along the Nile river.
