Advent meeting

On monday 11th of december 2017 we were meetng at pilsens bishopric with children from Elementary Art School of Pilsen and with the bishop. During our project this year Playful temple builders which was fociusing on baroque architecture we were workig with four schools from Pilsen, Ostrava, Prague and Přelouč on special projekt. We provided a model and children were supposed to finished it with their art. Finished models were shown at the exhibitions in Paris at WHC UNESCO and in Prague in Clam-Gallas palace. Now we wanted to return these models back to the children who made them so they can gift it to authorized person.

Children form Elementary art school under the supervision of the principal Mr. Karel Syka were making the front of the pilsner bishopric. This model was really admired by the visitors. Many stopped by and said they don’t believe this was made by children.

About the school:

Our school is located in Mariánské Lázně, in the quarter called Úšovice. With its 57 years, it is not new anymore. We have 21 classes with about 500 pupils, which is quite a lot. In addition to school buildings (a big and a small one), we have also a school canteen, a school club, workshops, a large gym, and behind it a super playground with a racetrack, long jump pit and a playground with artificial surface. During the lessons, we discover a lot of exciting things and we also go for various trips and excursions. The reason for our entering the competition about baroque was that we were planning to visit the Teplá Monastery. There, walking throughout the baroque wing, we admired a beautiful library, tried the old baroque printing press in the monastery and the second group painted on huge canvas. We will be happy to welcome you to our “cool” school and show you what we can do.
