Perspective and art

Let´s watch this video to learn how to draw a landscape using perspective.


Creativity and occupations

Students draw what it is said in the task and talk about why they take this decision about the worker: Is it a man or a woman? Why?

Using this activity, we can see if our students have some preconceptions about genre and proffessions.

The results are very interesting. As far our students are older, they have more difficulties to break their preconceptions. On the other hand,  younger students draw workers as their own genre image. (if they are girls, they draw girls, but if they are boys they usually draw boys) Nevertheless, there are some proffessions which are very linked to the genre as: politician, nurse, teacher or soldier.

Our cancer bandanas

6th level students design cancer bandanas for children who have this disease and need them. Our students learn about the disease, how it affects different organs, read about healthy habits and design bandanas in a paper.
After that, students voted and decided which was the nicest and the most representative bandana from the school. Then, we called an specialized company to print it in real fabric bandanas.



Art is a great tool to develop linguistic competence and talking about emotions.
