On the 11th of December, 2015, the “Children – our future” project team from Scoala Gimnaziala “Vasile Alecsandri” from Baia Mare, Romania, opened the art exhibition called “We Love Christmas”.  The project team is made of the teachers: Daniela Buda, Marcela Zaplac and Pop Octavian.  In the exhibition there are exhibits made by students from many schools from Romania, Italy, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Ghana, Bangladesh, Kenya and Iraq. On this occasion some of our colleagues prepared an artistic moment to mark the event: the school choir, coordinated by prof. Viorica Costenar, sang some Romanian carols, the students of prof. Maria Costea performed a traditional play, called “The Star”, which is usually performed on Christmas night in the villages in the Lapus region, in Maramures, and the students from grade 6B, coordinated by prof. Raluca Salajan, presented a nativity scene. We, the organizers, thank all the teachers and children who presented the wonderful carols, as well as the teachers, parents and students in the audience. We wish all of them Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May the light of Christmas fill their hearts with joy.

You can see more images from our official exhibition opening in our photo album and the video recordings with the carols and traditions our students presented for the occasion here: https://www.facebook.com/daniela.buda/media_set?set=vb.1531904688&type=2

5.         Target group: students aged 5-20 from the partner schools
Grup ţintă/beneficiar: elevii de varsta cuprinsa intre 5-20 ani, din scolile partenere

6.         Aim and objectives / Scop si obiective:
The Aim of the project is to encourage our students to use Arts and crafts as a means to communicate with their peers from other countries
Objectives:
-                      promoting the students’ and their teachers’ talent and creativity
-                      Improving the students’ artistic skills
-                      Improving our students’ self-esteem and opening their minds to be able to fight against ignorance, any kind of discrimination and early school leaving
-                      Making a cultural exchange among our students, learning about their partners’ cultures, their social and cultural values and the way of life in the partner countries.
Scopul proiectului este de a incuraja elevii sa foloseasca arta ca mijloc de comunicare cu tinerii din alte tari.
Obiective:
-                      Imbunatatirea creativitatii si a competentelor artistice ale elevilor si profesorilor lor;
-                      Imbunatatirea stimei de sine a elevilor si realizarea unei deschideri a mintii pentru a lupta impotriva ignorantei, discriminarii de orice fel si a abandonului scolar;
-                      Realizarea unui schimb, intre elevi, de informatii despre cultura, modul de viata si valorile social-culturale ale elevilor din tarile partenere

7.         Argument
In the 21st century, when using the Internet to communicate has become easier and more available to all, children can get various information very easily, by accessing various programs and applications on their PCs or mobile phones.
Art has a great influence on people’s lives and it can teach people to accept those who are different and it can be a good tool to fight against ignorance, discrimination and early school leaving.
That is why the teachers involved in this project have thought to coordinate their students’ activity of creating arts and crafts objects that can illustrate the students’ ideas and creativity concerning various topics from real life. Art can also be used as a means of communication amongst people, both in real and virtual world.
Our students will benefit from amusing, interesting and useful art activities and will be able to express their ideas and feelings, improve their self-esteem and communicate with their peers from abroad.
Argument
In secolul 21, cand comunicarea pe internet este la indemana tuturor, copiii tind sa obtina informatii foarte usor accesand diversele programe si aplicatii pe calculator si/sau pe telefonul mobil.
Arta are o mare influenta asupra vietii oamenilor si ii poate invata sa ii accepte pe cei care sunt diferiti, si poate fi o unealta buna pentru lupta impotriva ignorantei, a discriminarii si a abandonului scolar.
De aceea, profesorii implicate in proiect s-au gandit sa coordoneze activitatea creativa a elevilor lor in domeniul artelor vizuale care sa poata ilustra ideile si creativitatea elevilor in ceea ce priveste diferite teme din viata reala. Arta poate fi folosita sic a mijloc de comunicare intre oameni, atat in mediu real, cat si in cel virtual.
Elevii vor beneficia de activitati amuzante, interesante, si in acelasi timp vor invata sa-si foloseascacreativitatea pentru a-si exprima ideile si sentimentele, pentru a-si imbunatati stima de sine si pentru a comunica cu colegii lor din alte tari
