Well.. Olympic fever may be well and truly over in London for 2012, but it has just begun here as the Olympic flag is handed over to Brazil as it gears up to be the next host country in 2016… What a celebration that will be…!
Imagine our surprise when we took a stroll one afternoon in the back streets Eldorado, just behind Acer Brasil HQ we discovered on a local school wall a huge mural painted by the children commemorating London 2012 Olympics – complete with those funny little mascots…!!
Back at Acer we decided to get busy being creative ! We wanted to concentrate on the movements made by the body at the starting line of any Olympic competition including the Paralympic Games. How would the positions differ from ‘ready’ – to ‘set’ – to ‘go’? (um, dois, tres – vai….! in Portugese)
So the children got into groups and each took turns drawing around each other to creat silhouettes, which overlapped to make some really interesting designs showing lots of movement!
From these they transformed into beautiful vibrant artworks! They loved working large scale and getting messy with paints and glue!
And here are the results of their collaborative efforts. Some very beautiful vibrant artworks which now adorn the walls at Acer! The children are very proud of the work they’ve done – and so they should be – there are some very talented artists here! We look forward to exhibiting these at and CMAP’s forthcoming exhibition!
