What makes a piece of art valuable ?
Before our virtual field trip to the Reina Sofia Art Museum, our students had a group brainstorming “What makes a piece of art valuable”. They shared their thoughts by using Padlet. Next, they explored the history of Picasso’s Guernica and presented the most important and interesting facts by using ThingLink. The Padlets and ThingLinks of our national teams were embedded in Twinspace. After these pre-field trip activities, we visited the Reina Sofia Art Museum virtually in order to explore the artworks of Pablo Picasso, especially Guernica.
The learning outcomes
Students will be able to
work collaboratively in order to create common outcomes
discover and explore a virtual museum
receive and cultivate information, organise information
interpret a historically significant painting in its historical context
use the WEB 2.0 tools of this project creatively.
The activity description
"My whole life as an artist has been nothing more than a continuous struggle against reaction and the death of art. In the picture I am painting — which I shall call Guernica — I am expressing my horror of the military caste which is now plundering Spain into an ocean of misery and death." - Picasso
After the above mentioned tasks, our students will be ready to explore the historical context of Picasso’s anti war painting Guernica. In order to analyse this masterpiece in its historical context collaboratively, the students of our project will form a transnational Glogster Class. They will present the results of the analysis by creating a Glog. This Glog will be a transnational blog of our students in one poster.
