  2. Write a word about the work of art on the base plate.

How to prepare

  • 2 base plates

Other bricks will be used to build the construction.

Facilitation tips

  • Colors of bricks can be relevant in masterpieces. Blind children understand that each brick is a specific color and can utilize them accordingly (green for leaves, yellow for the sun…

  • When a child feels admiration and consideration of their art, it stimulates new ideas and techniques.

  • Ask "Tell me a story about your artwork."

  • Ask "Why did you choose the word that you wrote?"

Possible variations

  • Propose an art project as Pablo Picasso.

  • Write the title first and let the child build the masterpiece.
