A DAY AT THE MUSEUM

A day at the museum

On the 12th of April, students from Mullsjö folkhögskola visited the County museum at Jönköping. The museum has several exhibitions and we chose to work with two of them. The first one was “The picture of the year” which is a contest for journalists in Sweden and there were a lot of pictures that evoked a lot of emotions. The second exhibition was also the result of a contest for youths between 15-25. Six students from our school have been successful enough to be chosen to take part in the exhibition.

Our activity started with a presentation made by a guide from the museum that presented the two exhibitions which made a great introduction to the activities the student carried out in the museum.

Creativity and Communicative Competence at Antonio Padrón Museum

 

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.

Time for Webquest at Mullsjö folkhögskola!!

In March 2016 the students at Mullsjö folkhögskola had an activity where we looked at pictures from famous Spanish artists. We had a look at the element of time in the paintings and tried to play with that. The task given to the students was to make a new version of the painting and put in something from their own time into the new painting.
