Kunst met een grote K
De Stip

Deze week lezen we het prentenboek De Stip van Peter H. Reynolds en leggen we de link naar poëzie. Als een simpele stip een kunstwerk kan zijn, hoe maak je dan van een bordje bij de groenteboer met ‘Sla 12 cent’ een gedicht. En hoe combineer je beeld met poëzie, zodat het elkaar versterkt.

Als alles volgens planning gaat krijgen we maandag 8 mei bezoek van kunstenaar Peter Riezebos. Op dinsdag 16 mei bezoeken alle leerlingen van KS2 zijn tentoonstelling in het Duolun museum.
