4th November (Tuesday)

Hello!
Today in the class of Social Sciences Paqui explained us the instructions for the Baroque Project. We all have two works (that can be work of architecture, sculptures and paintings). This two works have been chosed by our teacher. We have to write an individual post on both works writing the information about they.After this Paqui has revised our homework for today, that was to complete a scheme from the Baroque Art with the book's contets.

When she finished to revise, we started to correct this scheme that have five parts:

Chronology: This style was developed in the 17th century and a part of the 18th century.

General features: This style had movement; realism representations; complexity; interest in surprising the audience; curved lines, concave and convex; and predominance of colour and light over drawing. And Paqui explained us that this style had just the opposite characteristics of the Renaissance Art.

Architecture: The architecture in this style had curved lines, spirals, ellipticand oval floor plans, solomonic colums, contrast of lights and shadows... Paqui drawn the diferents componets of the architecture. And then we seen some examples of this, like the square and colonnade of saint Peter of the vatican by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, in Italy and the Versailles palace by Le vau, Mansar  and le nótre, in France.

And we seen also examples, like Apolo and Daphne by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Paqui us the history of this sculpture when Daphne flee from Apolo and become a tree. And Fontana Di Trevi, by Nicolas Salvi, where the people throw coins.

Oh, my God, in architecture you have written "diferents componets". I guess you meant DIFFERENT(*) COMPONENTS.

*we write "different" in singular (we don't say "differents") because normally the adjectives don't have a plural form.

Hello,
Please, write a title for your post and remember that you have to use the present perfect and check the spelling after posting, because there are many spelling mistakes and it takes a lot to correct all this. These are my corrections:

-The verbs in the present perfect: …has explained us the instructions for the Baroque Project.

-These two works have been chosen by our teacher

-… writing the information about them

-has revised our homework for today, which was to complete a scheme from the Baroque Art with the book's contents.

-When she has finished to revise, we has started to correct this scheme, which had five parts:

-Paqui has explained us that this style had just the opposite characteristics of the Renaissance Art.


-has drawn the diferents components of the architecture. And then we have seen some examples of this, like the square and colonnade of saint Peter of the Vatican by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, in Italy and the Versailles Palace by Le Vau, Mansart and leNotre, in France.

-The purpose in this style was representing movement, capturing fleeting movements

-And we have seen also examples, like Apollo and Daphne by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Paqui has told us the story of this sculpture when Daphne fled from Apollo and became a tree

-use of oil painting, predominance of colour over drawing, use of warm colours, contrast of light and shadows, realism, movement, complex, compositions in order to shock the audience...And also wehave seen some examples, like Death of the Virgin, by Caravaggio, which was a strange painting because the painter (have) used a young prostitute to represent the old Virgin, and The calling of Saint Matthew also by Caravaggio.

-And we have copied some words on the glossary:
to shock-impactar

-Solomonic column- columna salomónica

-And we have an exam next Friday

That's all I've found. Bye!
