I spy with my little eye

An INTERACTIVE tour with creative tasks in the museum rooms.

How does an artist tell a story with images? The pupils discover the fascinating visual language of modern and contemporary art: rhythm, colours, contrasts, fields, lines, smudging and accents. They attempt to describe the images in words with various inspiring linguistic exercises and games that encourage them to think actively and express their opinions. In so doing, they will discover a wealth of sometimes strange, and often surprising, images and captivating stories!

A subjective take

An INTERACTIVE tour with creative tasks in the museum rooms.

Art fuels creativity and playfulness, raises questions, presents challenges, and expands your perspective. Artists use visual language to communicate something. They convert their ideas, views and feelings into images. Viewing art also involves emotions. With this museum tour, art helps the pupils to sense, recognise, name and acknowledge feelings, both in themselves and others. They notice that these can be different for everyone. In this way, children improve their social and emotional skills and learn how to engage with their own feelings and those of others.

Target group: year two of primary school
