On the morning of May 14th, students of Intermedio 2-1 (Saro Rosales’s students) and Intermedio 1-1,2 (Charo González’s students )visited Antonio Padrón’s museum in the northern city of Gáldar, Gran Canaria.
After doing some activities previously in class, such as a quiz,a reading, a listening and some matching exercises,students checked what they had learnt at the spot. One group worked at the artist’s room, firstly answering a questionnaire, and later working with a particular painting that depicted their moods. The other two groups worked with Antonio Padron’s friends’ s paintings at the indigenous room. They had to walk around the room and guessed who the works of art belonged to .
Later on, all the students worked together at the central yard, Intermedio 2 students painting and drawing what they had felt and the other two groups choosing three or more elements from the indigenous room and creating their own Canarian composition.
It was a wonderful morning full of excitement and creativity, we really enjoyed it.
