Lagos, Portugal - The most beautiful city, coast line and beaches in South Portugal.

While coloured trawlers bring in the fish, over in the Marina yachts from around the World are anchored. Signs of a longstanding relationship with the sea. 

During the Voyages of Discovery, Prince Henry the Navigator would restock his caravels here as they set out to prove the world did not end at Cabo Bojador. King Sebastião made it the capital of the Algarve, a position it maintained through to 1755. And it was from Lagos that king Sebastião set out to conquer North Africa, an expedition that was to prove historically disastrous for Portugal. From the Manueline window set into the Governor’s Castle, he was to address his troops for the final time. In the Gil Eanes Square, the sculptor João Cutileiro managed to embody the wild dreams of this adolescent king. 

In its churches, museums and bustling squares, Lagos reveals its ties with the sea. On either side of the centre stand two testimonies to very different times. There is the Ponta da Bandeira Fortress, built to impose respect among the corsairs that plagued the region and now home to a museum dedicated to the Discoveries.
At the other extreme, there is the Marina, a meeting point with all the people and bars for a lively late afternoon drink. 

The first slave market of Europe was held under the arcades of the Infante D. Henrique square. The site is now the place to be for the best in local handicrafts. 

Amidst the abundant profusion of gold leaf carving and tiles of the church of Santo António, pick out the Lieutenant-general portrait following the "promotion" that king Pedro II bestowed upon himself. 

Right by the city, enjoy the charm of these rock-enclosed beaches and the seafront restaurants with their menus featuring the pick of the sea’s produce. A great suggestion for a great few days. 
If you have the opportunity to travel to Algarve, Lagos is one of the cities to visit in your holidays.

Little Nemo in Slumberland - Winsor McCay com direito a homenagem Google

Nesta segunda feira, dia 15 de outubro de 2012, o Google lançou em sua página inicial mais um Doodle  Comemorativo. Desta vez a homenagem é para o cartunista e animador Winsor McCay. A decisão de homenagear McCay se deve ao fato de sua mais famosa tira semanal completa 107 anos hoje. A tira em questão chama-se ”Little Nemo in Slumberland”.
A tira em questão foi publicada semanalmente pelos jornais New York American e New York Herald, do dia 15 de outubro de 1905 ao dia 30 de abril de 1913.
Winsor McCay nasceu no dia 26 de setembro de 1867, nos Estados Unidos. A principal importância do cartunista foi a de ele ser o  primeiro a utilizar as técnicas dos desenhos animados, que anos mais tarde foi utilizada por Walt Disney.

Depois de ter estudado Artes por 3 anos em Chicago, Winsor passou a se dedicar amplamente na criação de tiras em quadrinhos. Ele acabou influenciando cartunistas como Chris Ware, Moebius, Maurice Sendak e William Joyce.
Apesar de ter sido criada em 1905, Little Nemo acabou ganhando uma animação apenas no ano de 1911. Três anos mais tarde Winsor lançou a animação “Gertie the Dinosaur”, que foi considerada na época como um dos marcos da animação.
Por causa de toda a sua importância para a história da animação, Winsor McCay acabou dando nome a um dos principais prêmios de animação hoje em dia, o Winsor McCay Awards, prêmio que é oferecido aos principais profissionais que contribuíram com a área de animação.
Seu trabalho nas tiras de jornal influenciou gerações de artistas, incluindo nomes como MoebiusChris WareWilliam Joyce e Maurice Sendak.
Winsor McCay acabou falecendo aos 66 anos, mais precisamente no dia 26 de junho de 1934Winsor McCay (26 de setembro de 1869 – 26 de julho de 1934) foi um cartunista e animador norte-americano. Artista prolífico, McCay foi pioneiro na técnica de desenhos animados, criando um padrão que seria seguido por Walt Disney e outros em décadas seguintes. Suas duas criações mais conhecidas foram a tira semanal Little Nemo in Slumberland, publicada de 1905 a 1914 e de 1924 a 1927, e a animação Gertie the Dinosaur, criada em 1914.

O Vermelho da Rua - Streets in Red

O vermelho da rua é uma instalação de duas arquitectas austríacas, Sandra Janser e Elisabeth Koller
. Este é um exemplo que certamente vai inspirar os alunos, fazê-los imaginar a sua rua com outra cor, dar-lhes a conhecer a realidade da possibilidade de fazer intervenções fantásticas no espaço público e perceber o impacto que uma cor pode ter no espaço e na experiência do dia-a-dia de qualquer pessoa.

Streets in red is an installation of the two austrian architects Sandra Janser e Elisabeth Koller. This is one more great example that will certainly inspire students to imagine their street in a different color, will give them the knowledge of the real possibility in making these kind of interventions in the public space, to understand the impact of one color in a space and in the day-to-day experience of the people.

Master Klee! Teacher at the Bauhaus

The Bauhaus was founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius as a practical school for aspiring designers. The training was structured into a theory course on Formative Creation and a practical apprenticeship, in which the focus was on the design of objects and furniture as well as architecture.

Paul Klee was active at the Bauhaus as a lecturer – called master – between 1921 and 1931 beside Wassily Kandinsky, Lothar Schreyer or Oskar Schlemmer. During this time Klee wrote lecture notes on Pictorial Formation and made around 3’900 pages of teaching notes, which he described in its entirety as Teaching Notes on Pictorial Creation. He did not teach emerging artists, but as he said himself ”creators, working practitioners”. Like Walter Gropius he was convinced that art itself cannot be taught, but can only arise through intuition. The aim of his teaching was to convey to the students the fundamental principles of pictorial creation.
The exhibition Master Klee! is organised in accordance with the 24 chapters of Klee’s teaching. For each chapter a selection of the notes is displayed. Klee’s attitude is, that it is not the final form that is important, but the path to its achievement, which runs as a dominant idea through his teaching. He constantly emphasised that a form does not exist, but becomes. Therefore he researched its interior and its formation. Using existing growth phenomena in nature he illustrated particularly at the start of his teaching activity the forming of abstract constructions.
Klee’s lecture notes are not sketches of his works. He developed the teaching on the basis of his thoughts about his own artistic activity. Nevertheless his work and his teaching are two independent areas which occasionally come into contact with one another. So in some of his works Klee applied playfully the design processes he was teaching.
Five aspects are of great significance both in Klee’s work as well as in his teaching: Nature, colour, rhythm, movement and construction. A selection of works shows, that Klee was occupied with these themes already before, during and after his activity at the Bauhaus.
The exhibition marks the conclusion of a four-year research project. With the support of the Swiss National Science Foundation SNSF and the Paul-Klee Foundation of the Civic Community of Berne Klee’s Teaching Notes on Pictorial Creation could be revised and published in an Online-Data Base www.kleegestaltungslehre.zpk.org.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II - In the heart of Milano

During my stay in Milano in June 2012, one of my favorite places to go and walk, was Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the doubled- arcade street is formed by two glass-vaulted arcades intersecting in an octagon covering the street connecting Piazza del  Duomo to Piazza della Scala. Its always filled with tourists, milanese people and its the real place for everyone to meet. Walking  in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is a unique experience. The floor is covered in natural stone and byzantine roman mosaic with precise geometric patterns and its a pleasure to walk through.
All milanese life is around Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, from here you can go to Via Torino, Via Dante and all the most amazing streets in Milano.
For sure I will make another visit to this unique and vibrating city of Milano.
