Pero tranquilos, no voy a escribir aquí una defensa de estas enseñanzas porque sé que a vosotros no os hace falta que os convenza de tales obviedades, además, me pongo enferma...de modo que vamos al lío.
The implementation of the new education law of the spanish minister Wert for the next school year, is a mallet blow to artistic education like Music and Art. If they were not sufficiently denigrated being considered stuffing subjects without apparent usefulness, now they will be almost extinct. Our education minister is so ignorant! what a shame!
But do not worry, I will not write here a defense of these teachings because I know that you don't need to be convinced of these obvious remarks, and also I get sick ... so let's continue
I made a miniature scene depicting a space in the house dedicated to children, where they can feel happy while developing their creativity. An art corner.
The floor is covered with of narrow strips of stained oak color balsa wood forming spikes.
I applied wax and bitumen, later to bring out the shine with a rag wool.
I made the structure of the fireplace with foam board 5mm thick that I covered with filler puty and layer of plastic varnish. Talco powder is applied to avoid unnatural brightness and a pinch of wax with betumen to get the wall a bit dirty.
The fireplace is made with a cut photo frame. The inside is covered with bricks made of adhesive cork and then I painted it white. With coork too I made the floor of the fireplace.
Una de las paredes es más baja que la otra, circunstancia que aproveché para colocar una ventana.
I lined the walls of wooden slats leaving space to fit the chimney flue.
One wall is lower than the other, I took advantage of it to place a window.
I have assembled the structure of the diorama using skewer sticks, and I covered the outside with wooden slats.
Para el cristal he usado acetato que he emplomado por los dos lados con pintura en relieve, y los espacios romboidales los he pintado con pinturas para vitral de distintos colores.
For the glass I used acetate leaded by the two sides with relief paint, and I've painted the diamond spaces with stained glass paints.
To add visual warmth to the room, I added some oak beams and I placed three colorful shelves between the fireplace and the wall.
After painting a dollhouse I made holes with an hand drill into two rooms and I installed miniLEDs. Then I have furnished it (with bits of wood, cloth, paper, beads ...)
La lámpara es un rectángulo de papel pantalla con unas patas de madera.
Another LED is on the mantel and inside the conduit the battery
The lamp is a paper prism with wood legs.
The table and stools are made with wooden circles of different sizes. I painted some details with the colour of the shelves.
I've done a cork board to place the children works pictures, secured with pins (made with tiny circles of colored cardboard)
I made a clothes rack with a wooden house and toothpicks.
I put on board a decorated wooden letters
The crayons are made with toothpicks and the bucket with a small plastic cap.
The hole of the fireplace serves to save some games. Since it is certainly not advisable a working fireplace in a children's room. To make the twister carpet, I printed the game on a sheet of transfer paper, and glued it to a piece of cotton with an iron.
I hope you liked it and remember to let your children paint as much as possible. Give them brushes, pencils, scissors, cardboards, glue ... and let them make a mess while discovering what they have inside and what they can do.
