P5 – Beatriz Milhazes – Homework Task

Image result for brazilian flag

As part of our Brazil topic we will be looking at the Brazilian artist, Beatriz Milhazes. Next week in class we will be recreating some of her paintings. For homework this week I would like you to access the link below and familiarise yourself with her work. For additional information on her background you should click the Biography tab on the homepage.

Some of the vocabulary used is a little tricky but please remember if you are unsure of what a word means, you should use a dictionary (or ask) to check the definition.

You should then write a short paragraph (no more than 50 words) about Beatriz and her work. This should be in your own words as much as possible – DO NOT just copy directly from the text. Let me know your personal thoughts on her paintings. Think about the following questions when writing your paragraph.

  • When and where was she born?
  • What style of art does she create?
  • What do you think of it?
  • Why do you think that?
  • Is there a particular painting you like?
  • Why do you like it?

You should leave your paragraph as a post on our blog and I will publish them all at the end of the week. If you are unable to post on the blog, please complete your paragraph on paper. This task should be completed for Friday.
