"Think out of the box", February 2013",
From simple objects on the street, signs or meaningless details, kids can make a whole, very interesting story. First reaction? Wonder.... Second reaction? Amaze!!!!! Now, they can draw hours with pencil and piece of paper. Presentation of Banksy's work has triggered our students imagination and reaction to detail.
How The Story works........
And the projects.....
Think out of the box - Banksy's "Haring Dog" was a base for our student own "mural-on-the-paper" project. Simple task and a lot of fun.

Let's start from the beginning - Watercolors with National Geographic, March 2013
Our virtual trip have started in Northern Spain in the cave of Altamira when 35.600 years ago first Paleolithic Art have been performed.
Then we explored Animal Kingdom with the globes, great animal books and National Geographic Kids magazine. They all had really great time.
Project: We used the most beautiful pictures from the National Geographic Magazine, cut in pieces, and letting kids finished the rest of missing picture. This project was a part of geography, part of biology and part of art history. Perfect combination for young explorers.
