Another look at art class

The other day I came across this fab idea on Facebook and copied it in class. It’s a great way to introduce some classic (and not so classic) artwork in class.

Firstly I handed out some famous painting flashcards that students had to describe and give their opinion on.

Then I asked students to choose one or find a famous painting online and re-enact it. The results are fab!!

Just in case you don’t recognise the original the students are holding it!

And finally a group effort!

The language generated, not only in terms of describing and discussing art, but especially later when students had to direct each other into the right positions, was just amazing!

Remember, this is Wafia Sboui’s cool idea!
