ARTS AND CRAFTS
Starting in 3P, students participate in a weekly workshop led by a visual arts teacher
INGRID DI MARTINO
Visual arts teacher
Wire, glue, metal, threads and string, wood, bricks, stones, fabric, cardboard, screws, nails and bolts… And much more: clay, sand, water, pencils and pastels, paper, brushes, gouaches (but only five basic colours: black, white, yellow, red, blue to then make yourself all the colours you want!) And then, dreams, ideas, pleasure, doing… and an eraser for when you made a mistake (it’s reassuring!).
We can now work and create with our stained fingers, all kinds of objects that until now, existed only in our imagination….
