The Ukrainian artist Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979) was a key figure in the Parisian avant-garde. Together with her husband, the painter Robert Delaunay, she undertook an artistic adventure based on contrasts of colour and the dissolving of form through light that led towards abstraction. Her work in modern design included the concepts of geometric abstraction, the integration of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, and clothing.
Students from DECCA Course at EOI Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, after being working in an English class based on her work and being inspired by her art and costumes, learners created an activity where they combined a written text (a mini-story) with a creative coat as Delaunay’s design.

One of the most famous paintings in Sweden is Carl Larsson´s Midwinter sacrifice, a huge painting you can find at the National museum in Stockholm. We worked with an activity that focused on the painting and its motive. After an introductory VTS and different tasks the students were told to make some research about a given subject connected with the painting and present it on a poster. When the wonderful result was up on the wall, we all enjoyed a vernissage while eating snacks and drinking cider as you usually do at such an event.
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.
