Dear 2PROS students,

We started a new lesson about arts as you are going to visit a museum soon. Here is an exercise for you… The painting was made by Munch, in 1893 and it is called “The scream“.


Using the vocabulary from the lesson you must write a comment on the blog :

1 ) To describe the pictures (who ? where ? what colours ?)
2 ) To give your feelings about the painting (emotion, feeling, opinion…)

You must do the exercise this weekend. Thank you !
