NUESTRO "PROJECT" DE ESTE AÑO - 2018-2019
" FOUR MASTERPIECES AND DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES"
We have worked on 4 pieces of Art this year and found out that we have some great artists in our school.
MOSAICS IN PIAZZA ARMERINA- VILLA DEL CASALE
The Villa Romana del Casale was designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1997, a few years after another important Unesco document was released, designating the practice of physical fitness and access to sports a basic human right.
The images are dubbed “The Bikini Girls” on the museum labels and in guidebooks. I was told that this label is due to the fact that archaeologists in the 1950s though the mosaics were depicting some kind of beauty contest. They hadn’t ever seen girls lifting weights and wearing sports bras. In the last few years commentators have been trying to revise the label and call the mosaics “The Athletic Girls”.
Our students learnt how to make mosaics with the help of the Art and Technology teachers
THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS
To write about Hieronymus Bosch’s triptych, known to the modern age as The Garden of Earthly Delights, is to attempt to describe the indescribable and to decipher the indecipherable—an exercise in madness. However, our students have tried!
