to foster affective and emotional expression, part of the educational area for citizenship
paper, felt pens, paint brushes, clay, mural paper, fancy-dress sunglasses, cellophane, and tempera paint.
- An exploration is made of the possibility of expressing feelings, emotions, traits of identity, etc. through art.
- The pupils are offered the chance to experiment with different techniques: using modelling clay, painting directly with their hands and fingers or using color to represent the feelings and emotions they feel when listening to music.
- The class is then asked to draw a symbolic self-portrait using the technique that best defines them.
- As symbols, the pupils paint stars, hearts, flowers, people, flags.... either that or they take recourse to semi-abstract symbols.
- Each symbol will be scanned and digitally added to a common work.
- The composition of all emblems is printed to form an enormous single banner to run round the entire classroom.
- The banner is completed by writing and adding elements by hand.
- The pupils make sunglasses, putting piece of “stained glass” cellophane in the frames, so that they can use them to look at the mural differently.
