Under the umbrella of the Primary Years Program and the central idea of how social activities affect sustainable living, students of 5th and CM2 at ESRB looked at the impact of war on economy, the environment and humankind.
In the art classes, under the guidance of their teacher, Layla Hamasni, students got acquainted with the artist Pablo Picasso and his famous painting Guernica. The students analyzed the artwork in terms of content but also in terms of value, scale, tints and shades. As an application of the tonalities concept, students learned how to draw their self-portrait in proportion, how to draw the features that characterize them and how to shade using lights and darks. Mrs. Samia Boulad, Head of Art, who was conducting a class observation gave the students feedback and admired their auto-portraits.
