Sonia Delaunay Activity

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 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.

Women Artists and DECCA.

DECCA visits an exhibition vindicating the role of Women Artists. For too long they have either been omitted altogether, or isolated (….) and discussed only as women artists, as if in some strange way they were not part of their culture at all. In this exhibition DECCA could savour the work of some women artists and their contribution to art. Again, students could see the museum as a learning space and that learning English at museums is an extraordinary emotional experience.
