Sites célèbres et billets doux

From 18 to 29 June 2012

Institut français d’Ecosse

Thirty-six second year pupils from Perth Academy have created an exhibition that is the selected outcome of a session’s work focusing on interdisciplinary learning.

The project was designed to deliver an enriched learning experience, with the intention of encouraging and reinforcing an engagement with French language and culture. In addition, its purpose was to foster an interest in visual, aural and verbal communication, within a creative context.

The lessons involved many learning experiences, but playing with language was the overarching theme, and this playfulness is integral to the work which was produced.

The pupils have been fully involved in curating and promoting their exhibition. Cards created from the artworks have been handmade by the pupils and are available for sale in aid of Médecins Sans Frontières. The paintings may also be purchased in aid of this charity.
