Understand the importance of the ephemeral, valuing conceptual work in art, and strengthen literature and poetry topics recreationally.
Chalk, ballpoint pens, camera, and video camera.
- Images of ephemeral art and land art from art books or the Internet are commented on.
- In a brainstorming session, the group is asked to come up with ideas for ephemeral art projects.
- Some projects can be done in the street where the drawings are exposed to the weather and will gradually deteriorate until they disappear.
- They can make a drawing in a wood by marking lines on the trees using chalks.
- The wood thereby becomes an immense canvas where the optical drawings can be read depending on the spectator’s position.
- Ephemeral drawings can be done on the floor of the school playground using chalks.
- This drawing can be used for playing, moving over and around it and it can create a surprise for the other students in the school.
- They can come up with a performance based on a simple dance routine.
- They all become one single body that moves in unison: they go from one side to the other and then suddenly fall on the floor.
- Micro-poetry (one or two lines long) writing is organized to recreationally reinforce Literature topics.
- Micro-poems are written on their hands with washable felt tip pens.
- Actions can be recorded on video or in photos.
