Gaudi project out of school
ENJOY GAUDÍ, Sant Pau’s brand new Art project for Primary. Our students will enjoy this semester the fusion between nature and decoration by the hand of our world famous architect Gaudí.
Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (1852 – 1926) was a Spanish Catalan architect from Reus and the best known practitioner of Catalan Modernism. Gaudí’s works reflect an individualized and distinctive style. Most are located in Barcelona, including the Sagrada Família, La Pedrera and Park Güell.
1st and 2nd grade visit Park Güell, a reflection of Gaudí’s artistic plenitude, which belongs to his naturalist phase. It was intended to be a residential estate in the style of an English garden city.
3rd and 4th grade visit La Pedrera (1906-1912), which is one of the most important buildings of Modernisme and it is also one of the most important works created by Antoni Gaudí.
The main pedagogical objetives are: to recognize these three main elements as significant works by Antoni Gaudí, to learn to pay attention, observation skills and curiosity from Gaudí’s work, to familiarize themselves with the elements of nature present in them, strengthen at the same time the visual-spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, and naturalistic intelligences.
This art project is one of the most used activities included in Sant Pau’s multilingual program where the aim is to use English to cumunicate in the classroom.
