El meu vessant artístic va començar amb una llicència d'estudis a Anglaterra. Allà vaig elaborar una pàgina web en anglès amb propostes didàctiques sobre l'educació visual i plàstica en anglès.
Després d'uns anys d'implementació d'aquestes unitats didàctiques, he començat a elaborar i organitzar uns tallers de plàstica en angles com són: taller d'escultura, de dibuix, de pintura i manualitats amb paper. La idea principal és muntar tallers monogràfics amb una durada mínima de 10 sessions i per alumnes de cicle mitja o cicle superior.

- Chants, songs and counters (to get groups or do something)
- Write a long Word and they have to say words using these letters (CONSTELLATIONS)
- Words starting with B, D, A
- Chain words, one person says a word and the following one has to say another starting with the latest letter, rain- nurse- emotions...
- Use the recorder and interview them or they interview you
- Build a sentence, star: Today..., Yesterday...., We’re going.....Each student has to add a word and build a sentence.
- Game; Guess who: description of a student, or things
- Use power-points, You Tube or webs with information useful for the activity to do.
- Tell a story,
- Mime the activities to do, the teacher starts and the students who guesses, continues.
- Talk about: elicit prior knowledge about materials, artist, techniques or about their previous artwork.
- Observation of the displays
- Brain gym
- Listen to music and ask what does it suggest?
- Give strips of paper with the steps of the activity to guess the order
Workshops are a good alternative of work. Working during a small period of time can give flexibility to schools, teachers and subjects.
These workshops can be used independently and they can last minimum of 10 sessions, depending on the school organization and the language work to be done.
I've planned 4 workshops:
Curved strips can be shape into a fan and this technique is very effective with photos of figures in action.
- To analyse the elements of the work and their relationship
- To learn vocabulary related to the works and life of the artist/ artists.
- To explore colour by developing paintings.
- To develop the ability to use colour in design.
- To encourage students to experiment with style.
- Art appreciation of great artists
Art is much more than drawing, but there is probably nothing more basic than drawing.
The activities will include drawing from observation, from memories and experience and from imagination.

Title of the activity
Age group / Level
Cicle Mitja and Superior.
Revise and share cultural knowledge
Learn to work in group.
Main language (vocabulary, chunks, sounds, …)
Questions or sentences about different subjects, as maths, language, geography, history, sports, science. E.g.: science (Which part of the plant grows under the ground?), maths (How much is 10 times 11?), history (Which year was America discovered?, language (Tell the plural of these 2 words, foot and child), geography (Which is the longest river in Africa?), sports (Name 3 sports to be played without a ball)
6 different coloured cards with appropriate questions or sentences inside (minimum 6 in each)
Grouping and interaction
Groups of 5 or 6 children, one of them has to be the speaker and they have to share and agree an answer in turns.
· First of all, you have to make groups, and then they have to choose a name for the group and a speaker.
· The teacher writes the names on the board and explains the game. They play in turns choosing the coloured card (subject). Every correct answer scores 2 points, only 1 point if they don't know it exactly or in English.
· If a group doesn't know the answer; the following group has a chance to say it and scores 1 extra point.
. The game finishes when the time is over or when the teacher decides.
· There's just an important rule: Children can't complain. If they do, his or her group loses 1 point.
·The children can write their own questions.
·You can be flexible in term of grouping and on subjects, more or less topics or different as games, music, art...
It's a good way to develop team work skills. Students have to check understanding, share opinions and agree on an answer.
The teacher can adapt the questions asking easy ones to a low group or challenging ones to a good group.
