A few hanging smocks. A coat rack which reads: Léger, Plasticine, Matisse, Paste, Michelangelo…

In the Open School of Art of Ferrol (Galicia), a group of children between the ages of six and twelve are theorizing about Art with the help of their teacher; quite rightly, one of the students concludes: “Art serves to see things differently”.

“Matisse is spelt with two S’s” is a portrait of childhood through an art school. In it, some children called Sharpener, Matisse, Palette, Paste and Giotto, among others, carry out activities such as painting au naturel, making collages, adapting famous paintings, visits to museums… all this while growing up, learning to relate to each other and seeking their place in the world.

Ultimately, this documentary reflects a microcosm where the fears, joys, frustrations and contradictions that all human beings have, are laid bare for everybody to see.
