Creative typography


Type the sky
Type the sky is an original project by Lisa Rienermann, a student of Duisburg-Essen University. Each letter is an empty space in the sky of Barcelona surrounded by buildings. She says: "Todo comenzó por la Q. Estaba en una pequeña calle de Barcelona y al mirar hacia arriba vi las casas, el cielo y las nubes. El área oscurecida por las casas dejaba entrever una forma en el cielo que parecía una Q. Esa fue la idea de la técnica. Pensé que si una Q me había encontrado a mi, no sería difícil que yo encontrara al resto del alfabeto. De modo que pasé semanas mirando al cielo, buscando el resto de las letras entre las casas."

Eating from A to Z! By Luiza P. (Flicker user). She says: “This project was conceived as a way to document my eating habits and routine, through the creation of an alphabet. “

Who are we?

I would like you to introduce yourselves.
Just pick on "comentarios", under this post, and write your name followed by the initial of your surname and your course. You can tell me which your hobbies are or whatever you want.

Nadia C. 1ºA. Hello teacher. My hobbies are basketball and dancing.

This is a task I like doing when we begin a new course. It let me meet you, know your names and, by the way, we work with a "popurrí" of items which we are going to work with along the next nine months.

I realize you don't understand very well what your are doing now. Don't worry. We will hang them in our cork and we will have good references for the different topics we are going to deal with such as technical drawing (parallelism, perpendicularity, Tales), image, colours, textures, visual elements, design process, sketches...

You will see your drawings published in this blog very soon....

Beginning a new course

Beginning a new course. Despite the conflict we are having in our public highschools, I'm sure all of us we'll do our best (at least teachers and students).

Hello! Welcome everybody to this "Plástica" blog which will be yours from now on.
Our goal is to use and learn Arts and English at the same time.
And... by the way, we will use and learn new technologies (but... without forgetting  traditional techniques).

But, above all,
I want you to enjoy it.

Welcome 1st ESO!
Welcome 4th ESO!
