About the project

Project name: Computer Metamorphoses - art - primary schools, (students aged 11+12, grade 5)

Description of project:

This project aims to develop students' attitude to art, their observation, creativity and the use of ICT for creating artworks. We would like to start co-operation with national galleries to present and guide young students into the world of art on national and international level. (In our case -  Slovenia we will be in touch with one of the persons of our national Gallery, and we expect other partners to do the same in their country.)

Project plan - steps:

Each partner school chooses one of the artworks (they could scan it or find it on the web) of their national artist and send it to us (

All the sent paintings will be published on our site and sent to the partner schools.

Each partner chooses all the paintings of the other partners (if there are 5 partners that means 4 paintings) except their own.

Students in the partner school try to paint the picture by using computer graphic programs (paintbrush, Painter, CorelDraw or others)

After drawing it they also write a short opinion about their painting:
- why did they choose that painting
- what was the most difficult part to paint
- where were they most successful and why?

They send their artworks and opinions to the project co-ordinator and also publish them on their site if they have one.

The artworks will be published in the electronic gallery.

The main aim of the project is to get to know and understand other national painters' artworks and to develop students' own interpretation of art.
