Some of my colleages, students and parents and me went on a demostration to protest against the double standard applied to schools in Madrid. We think the PUBLIC SYSTEM STILL CATERS FOR ALL THE STUDENTS' NEEDS AND SO WE SHOULD NOT BE DENIED OUR BUDGET WHILE PRIVATE EDUCATION IS GETTING THAT PART OF THE TAXES.
IS THIS AN APPROPRIATTE IMAGE OF THE SYSTEM MADRID WOULD LIKE TO HAVE?
Thanks to the artist who created this comic strip. Art and humour all in one.

Two days ago, an interesting exhibition closed in Madrid. It was in Fundación Juan March. As usual I could not see it. Well, at least we have the internet to see as many paintings as we want.
Tarsilia was a Brazilian painter who came to Europe, where she got to know many famous painters and then returned to Brazil. She kept on investigating on different ways to depict her ideas, Producing very fine pieces of art.

Harpist Neferhotpe playing small arched harp.
Tomb of Nebsumenu and Sunebau. XII Dynasty, 1991-1782 BC, Middle Kingdom.
Stela. Necropolis at el-Khokha, Western Thebes.
Remember the characteristics of Egyptian painting we studied in class. Is there any sense of perspective? (look at the table and the food on top) Are the eyes frontal or in profile, and the chests? Are the figures idealistic?(look at the harpist)!!!
Well as you can see there are always exceptions to what the teacher tells.
