8FS2 Cross-curricular Spanish art project

Un cuadro por un pintor hispánico: a painting by a hispanic artist

8FS2 recently studied the famous painting 'Las Meninas' by Velázquez and learnt some useful Spanish vocabulary to describe a painting. They then chose a painting to describe and wrote their own descriptions. As they had done a project in Art on Frida Kahlo, her work was quite popular, but there were plenty of other choices as well. I was really impressed by the variety of the choices and the standard of the descriptions - advanced level work, 8FS2! (Note - these have been marked on the hard copies, not the digital ones, so they have mistakes on them!)

Other examples are available to view below:
