Class 1b made spatial forms of a salamander and a clown hat using coloured paper technique in form of scale model of a salamander and scale model of a clown hat, getting inspiration by the paintings of Amadeo de Souza Cardoso “The Leap of a Rabbit” and “Horse, clown and salamander”. The pupils were divided into two groups. The pupils from the first group were to draw a copy of a salamander using a black felt-tip pen on sheets of brown paper in size of 1m x 1.20 m. The second group of pupils drew a copy of clown hat using a black felt-tip pen on sheets of brown paper in size of 1m x 1.20 m. They cut out those two templates with the teacher’s help. Then, the pupils filled in the templates using torn paper collage with colours similar to the original. The resulting parts were stapled together and pupils stuffed the scale models with small balls made from newspaper. The pupils took commemorative photo with the salamander and the hat.
