First and second grade artists looked at the work of Spanish artist Joan Miro. Miro's art is characterized by simple black lines, dots and organic shapes and a limited color palette. They worked with partners or in small groups to create large scale pieces in the style of Joan Miro.
Here are examples of Miro's art that we looked at for inspiration:
"The Nightingale's Song at Midnight and the Morning Rain"
(Could this piece have a more beautiful title?)
"Ciphers and Constellations"
