Spanish through Art & Culture

7-11 years old

Spanish is a vibrant language and fascinating culture. This summer we are excited to continue offering our Spanish Art Course in which students are immersed in Hispanic art and culture as they develop their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.

Each student will build their understanding of the language through a different component of the culture. We will travel in time through all the richness of its music, customs, people, colour, culture and art. Through exploration of different activities and art projects students will enrich and build not only their vocabulary and communication in Spanish, but also their love of art and knowledge in different techniques.

The classes will be taught by Valeria Knez. Valeria is an artist and qualified Spanish teacher from Argentina. She has worked many years in her country and Hong Kong, teaching Spanish and decorative painting. She has also participated in collective expositions presenting her paintings. Teaching and visual arts are her passion. Valeria, in this summer camp, introduces the Spanish language as a place where culture and art are perfectly blended. Learning Spanish leads to discovering an amazing culture through classes specially designed to develop language learning and creativity.

**The course materials are on a 2 week rotation, meaning Weeks 2-3 are different and Weeks 4-5 starts the rotation again.
