Practical Activity 2: Multicultural Murals

  • Teamwork
  • Creativity
  • Effective communication
  • Time management
  • Trust in your team to do the work within the established limitations.
  • Collaborate with others in teams or networks
  • Conveying and exchanging information and ideas
  • Creating and innovating
  • Analysing and processing information

Paper or canvas for painting, paints, colours, watercolours, etc.

The idea is that each member of the group starts a painting, but it is finished with the work of the others by switching places every 15 minutes.

  • Divide the learners into groups of 4-5 people.
  • Each member of a team develops an idea for a painting. They will have 15 minutes to paint.
  • Then you will be requested to exchange seats with another member of the group. You will have between one and two minutes to express your idea to the next painter.
  • This will occur multiple times throughout the exercise.
  • Did you feel comfortable sharing your painting idea with other members?
  • How did you feel when other members shared their idea with you and trusted you?
  • What did you like the most of this experience?
  • Do you like how your original painting was finished? Do you think you would have finished it better or do you like more as it is after other members also collaborated?
  • Have you learnt something new with this activity? What is it?

Mix age groups and see how the collaboration between them is. What can be learnt from each other?
