The worksheet is made for art lessons from 5.-12. grade. The pupils are required to make a mood board (as an collage) and then swap the worksheets with a partner. Viewing the partners collage, the pupil has to provide three ideas for a present.
We discussed culural, geographical, historical contexts of the work by Daniel Blaufuks and the stories of our families. We discovered we are all mixed, our roots were spread out around the worls. Many students had african ancesters, one grand father was a nazi soldier, others were Portuguese soldiers in Africa, racism, colonisation and war issues were raised. Drawng out our family portraits we discovered things that our parents had kept in silence. All kind of archives were used; objects, photographs, post cards, oral histories. The end products were very different from drawing, to objects and collages. The important was the thinking process, drawing to unserstand ourselves.

2012 / Tartu Childrens Artschool. teacher Riho Kall
The aim of this project was to provide a useful teaching method that could be used in art classes to enhance visual thinking with the purpose to help students understand and create art. I designed worksheets that help students to analyze selected works of art using associative images and a worksheet to create art. The phases to create art are: keywords, associative pictures and the final work of art based on keywords and pictures. The theme for the art work was „Personal painful memories“.
2012 / Students of Sally Art School (14-18 years old)
Art work from different eras were analysed, links were made with society and phenomena of other areas of the period. A visual work was made based on the analysis. The task supports students to make connections between art, art history and society and raise the knowledge of the role of art and artists in different eras.
