Over the past few weeks, students in both schools in HPS and TWSP have been exploring the painting, ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch. They discussed what they thought of the painting and what the artist may have been thinking about when he painted it. From there they wrote about the things that made them ‘scream’ including personal things such as spiders or snakes. Then they wrote about what issues made them scream when thinking about South Africa or further afield in terms of global issues such as pollution, global warming, animal poaching and of course Covid. Following this, they then painted the image and used watercolor pencils to make their drawing and then added water to create their own piece of art work.
To finish, many of the students ‘posed’ in the same way as the image to add a layer of fun. As you can see, some of their work is very imaginative and some writing, as you can read, is quite thoughtful. Please enjoy their work. Well done to all the students who tried hard on something that they did not find easy!
