BISC-LP's Annual Art Institute Project 2019

March 14, 2019

  • St George 2

With the new school year in full swing, it is time for another Art Institute Project. This year the chosen piece is a painting called ‘St. George and the Dragon’ by Bernat Martorell. This painting is very inspiring and, I think, with the link to History and Literacy the children will come up with a wide range of ideas when interpreting it. I am always amazed at the creativity of our children - making this is by far my favorite Art project of the year. I love that the children can take the stimulus in whichever direction they choose and that each class's outcome is unique.

The Art Institute project is also linked with this year’s MIT theme of ‘STEAM Superheroes.’ As a department, we are always trying to find new ways to collaborate and show the children all of the ways our subjects interlink.  This piece led us to a discussion about heroes both real and imagined. This painting really seemed to hit all the aspects we were looking for. I am excited to see the outcomes of this year’s project and look forward to showing you all at our gallery exhibit in summer term.

I would encourage everyone to take a trip the Chicago Art Institute to see the painting in person and learn a little more about Bernat Martorell.
