Colegio Newman in Madrid did an impressive Scream from Nature project where the whole school participated, from the smallest children in the kindergarden, to the bachillerato students. Each level chose a specific environmental theme to learn about, and did Screams to go with the theme.
The project was a result from the workshop at Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, by EducaThyssen and Lise Wulff, and supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Madrid. All the Screams were presented on screen in the hall of Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.
Here is what Elmarina Binder Samways at the Art Department of Colegio Newman, writes:
